BENEFITING: POSTPARTUM PROGRESS

EVENT: Climb Out of the Darkness 2014

EVENT DATE: Jun 21, 2014

Chris Lemmon

THE STORY:

Dubuque Climb held at Heritage Trail Pond at 10:00am. We will meet at the Pavilian nearest the parking lot at 9:30am and walk the paved section of the trail (headed towards town). Rain date, July 13.

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.

 

You don't necessarily have to climb a mountain, by the way, to join in.

  • You can ride a mountain bike on a trail.
  • You can do a nature walk.
  • You can hike a mountain trail or walk along the beach. You can stand outside  and let the sun shine on your face.

 

No matter what you do, we still call it your Climb, because it is a symbol of your climb out of the darkness of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, whether you are a long-time survivor or 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!

I wish I could join your climb in person, or organize a climb in my nearby community of Waterloo/Cedar Falls, but we're traveling out of state at that time. I'm so grateful for all of you participating in this important advocacy event in Dubuque bringing attention to maternal mental health! As a maternal mental health advocate myself, I know how difficult the journey can be - I've held hands with my dear friends who have battled maternal mental health issues, heard so many stories from the families I support in my birth work of their barriers to good mental health care. Thank you for supporting the excellent work of Postpartum Progress, and HUGE THANKS for bringing attention to this issue right here in Iowa!! ((HUGS)) and *high fives* 3 years ago
