Story

Throughout May 2024 The staff on The Beeches Mother and Baby Unit in Derby are taking part in Action on Postpartum Psychosis' fundraising event; Miles for mums and babies.

As a ward we are going to complete 1240 miles, we chose this number as the current mother and baby unit building opened in 1993 and on average we help 40 families a year so we have decided we will walk a mile for every mum/family The Beeches has supported since opening.

We will be walking, running, cycling - Anything we can to get those miles in!

Thank you for taking the time to look at our page and thank you if you make a donation, this is hugely appreciated by us and APP!
