THE STORY:

Emily Courtney wrote -

It's no secret I've struggled with PPD. I was in a really awful place after my first daughter was born. When she was about two months old I met a fantastic group of women through a support group for moms with depression. Through that group I built myself an amazing support system, made some really great friends, met my childcare provider, and was able to once again focus on being me and being the best person I could be. When I found out I was pregnant with my second daughter unexpectedly, this support system provided the help I needed to not only get through the pregnancy, but make it through the postpartum period a lot more easily than I could have imagined. I'm climbing to raise awareness for perinatal and postpartum mood disorders, and to honor this group of women I'm proud to be a part of and call my friends.

 

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!
