THE STORY:

Welcome to the Rochester, NY Climb! We will be hiking at Mendon Ponds Park (Quaker Ponds Trail), which is located at 95 Douglas Rd, Honeoye Falls, NY 14472 (about 10 miles SE of Rochester).  A trail map can be found at: http://www2.monroecounty.gov/files/parks/MendonPark.pdf.  Start time is 10am and we will meet by the trail head. (There is a parking lot right next to the trail!).

As team lead, let me quickly share my story with you.  In September 2012, I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy.  In late October 2012, I began to realize something was not right with how I felt, thought, and acted.  Thanks to Postpartum Progress', I was able to self-educate myself on the basics of postpartum illnesses and gain the courage to reach out for medical help.

 Postpartum illnesses are devastating and affect a persons entire life, including the basic belief that one can be a good mom.  Postpartum illnesses (depression, anxiety, ocd, and psychosis) are not always diagnosed and/or talked about with new moms, and Postpartumprogress.com's goal is to do just that - promote education and awareness so moms, dads, and families know they are not alone and can seek help.

Please join me and others on June 21st to continue raising awarness, knowledge, and funding to ensure future moms and families get the support they need.   Thank You! - Abby

Climb Out of the Darkness is the annual awareness raising and fundraising event for Postpartum Progress, a nonprofit focused on supporting pregnant and new moms with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders like postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, postpartum OCD, postpartum psychosis and pregnancy depression. Also, Climb Out of the Darkness kicks ass. Just so you know.

The "Climb" is a symbol of a mothers climb out of the darkness of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.  You can join if you are a long-time survivor, someone who is still climbing, or someone who cares about the health of pregnant and new moms.

Help us raise money so that we can continue to raise awareness of how women are devastated by perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, make sure women know what they need to know about PPD, eliminate stigma and support the mamas who need it.

And now to get climbing!
