Board of Directors

Claire Kerr-Zlobin | Founder

As a new mom, Claire Kerr-Zlobin faced social isolation, anxiety, and loneliness. Following a diagnosis of Postpartum Anxiety and Depression, she set out to build the support system she wished already existed. Claire founded Life With A Baby, a peer-support program, in 2008.  Healthy Start Healthy Future was created a year later to support vulnerable families and improve maternal mental health outcomes. Since then, Claire has emerged as a pivotal advocate to broker change in the recognition, treatment, and stigma of maternal mental health.

Claire leads a dedicated team as CEO Life With A Baby Inc and lives in Thornhill, Ontario with her husband and two children.
