THE STORY:

I am part of the 1 in 7 women who will have a perinatal mood disorder. Last year on Mother's Day, I was in the depths of severe postpartum depression and unable to fully enjoy my first Mother's Day as a new mom should. This year is completely different. Because of support from family, friends and programs like Postpartum Progress, I am a survivor, a warrior mom. I climbed out of the darkness of postpartum depression and have been able to be present for a happy, fun and very special Mother's Day 2015. I was able to celebrate with my precious son and with my strong, loyal mother who played a critical role in my recovery. On June 20,  I will be participating in Postpartum Progress’ Climb Out of the Darkness™ to rejoice in my recovery and raise awareness for this important cause. I'd love to have you join me at the climb (details below). Donations to Postpartum Progress are also greatly appreciated!

 

Postpartum Progress’ Climb Out of the Darkness™ is the world’s largest event raising awareness of maternal mental illnesses like postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety & OCD, postpartum PTSD, postpartum psychosis, postpartum bipolar disorder, and pregnancy depression and anxiety. Climb Out is held on or near the longest day of the year annually to help shine the most light on perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. The event features mothers and others across the globe joining together to climb mountains and hike trails to represent their symbolic rise out of the darkness of maternal mental illness and into the light of hope and recovery. Funds raised support the 501c3 organization Postpartum Progress (http://postpartumprogress.org)

The Milwaukee Mamas & Friends Climb will take place on Saturday, June 20th from 9-11am at Havenwoods State Forest in Milwaukee, WI.

Directions to the Forest: Havenwoods State Forest is on the north side of Milwaukee, one block west of Sherman Boulevard on Douglas Avenue. From West Silver Spring Drive, turn north onto North Sherman Boulevard. At the second stoplight, turn left (west) on Douglas Avenue. After one short block, you will be at the Havenwoods entrance. Continue up the hill to the parking lot and nature center. Geographic coordinates are 43° 7' 20.5" N, 87° 58' 17.8" W.

Note about fundraising: It's not mandatory, but highly encouraged! Money you raise/donate will go to Postpartum Progress and all the amazing work they do to help moms and families affected by PPD and related illnesses. If you raise $100 or more you will receive a Climb Out of the Darkness™ t-shirt to wear at the Climb!
