Hi, my name is Amy. I am a mother of two and a maternal mental health advocate. I am so excited and honored to be leading a Climb this year! I am a survivor of postpartum depression (PPD) and anxiety (PPA), as well as postpartum OCD and postpartum post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I suffered greatly with PTSD due to the trauma and complications from the delivery of our first child, and with the other disorders in some combination with both pregnancies.
After several years of suffering with undiagnosed perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs), I dove in headfirst to figuring out what was wrong with me. I’ve spent the last four years learning everything I can about PMADs and have become a maternal mental health advocate in my community. I work to educate moms and providers about the risk factors and symptoms of PMADs, as well as how common and treatable they are.
By leading a Climb this year I hope to shed light on the fact that PPD is the #1 complication after childbirth, and 1 in 7 mothers will suffer with a PMAD. I’m also looking forward to raising funds for Postpartum Support International’s Georgia chapter. The great news is that 100% of what my team raises (minus Crowdrise’s administrative fee), goes directly to our chapter and will be used in part to help provide trainings, workshops and other educational materials for the moms and providers of our state.
Please consider joining my team for this Climb on Saturday, June 24th from 10:00 – 12:00 p.m. at Central Park in Cumming, GA. We will walk around the paved walking trail, so strollers and wheelchairs are welcome. There will be a few prize drawings for moms, dads and kids, as well as a group picnic after the Climb, so please bring a sack lunch for you and your family.
Please also consider making a donation to my team. No amount is too small and is completely tax deductible. Thank you for your support as we, “Climb out of the Darkness”.
Kindest regards - Amy Corn
