After having my first child in May 2010, my world was turned updside down. Instead of moments of joy and elation, I couldn't eat and cried more than not. It was a struggle climbing back up that mountain towards emotional wellness and I felt so alone. After having my second son in March 2013, I once again had to pick myself up, but this time was different. This time I found Postpartum Progress. The support from this network of moms was overwhelming and helped me climb that mountain more easily than before. Postpartum Progress educates, inspires and supports new moms and families around the globe, striving to stop the stigma of mental illness so that new moms don't feel so alone.
On June 18, 2016 we will climb, together, for moms everywhere to send the message that it IS possible to Climb Out of the Darkness!
