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.
Team Interlude Birth Services: Philly will be meeting at FDR Park for an afternoon of FREE FAMILY FUN and exercise. Meet us at picnic site #3 across from the playground. Throughout the afternoon, we'll have games and face painting for the kids, snacks for everyone, and you can take a stroll or bike ride around the park. Don't miss out on a chance to have fun with your family and support others while doing it! This event is FREE!!! Sign up for your free ticket (so we know how many people are coming!).
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 Postpartum Progress 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, get climbing!
