MAY is Pregnancy Awareness Month® (P.A.M.)
Pregnancy Awareness Month® is celebrated annually during the month of May. PAM was established in 2008 by author & lifestyle expert Anna Getty and social worker, producer & mompreneur Alisa Donner. Their mission is to empower, inspire and build a community of support for expectant women and families. The campaign focuses on four key initiatives: Education, Exercise, Nutrition & Wellness, and Nurture. PAM has quickly blossomed into a variety of grassroots events across the country during the month (Check out our Event Calendar for a location near you!) The PAM website is available 24/7 providing tips, new products and social connection for all.
“We are inspired and grateful everyday in our work with Pregnancy Awareness Month®. Eight years later, what started as an idea to create a month focused on celebrating pregnant women and new parents, has grown into a robust social media movement that has been ignited nationally through our friends and partners. Our campaign continuously expands via live events and on-line, for instance this year we have over a dozen licensed events occurring across the country and updates at our signature LA event, we will have a constant Twitter and Instagram feed posting. We are truly stepping into our vision of becoming a national movement that encourages pregnant or newly post-partum women, to find a supportive community through PAM.” – Anna Getty & Alisa Donner, Co-Founders PAM
