Postpartum Progress is one of the leading outreach organizations supporting the education, screening, and reduction of stigma around maternal mood disorders. The goal of this work is to help the 20% of women struggling with postpartum depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, and any other mood disorder related to the pregnancy and postpartum period. These disorders are frightening, debilitating, and often ignored. The work Postpartum Progress does helps these women and their families get the support, information, and access to care that they need to heal. This organization, along with the climbs, held all over the world, are organized by women who have been through the darkness themselves.
I know this battle personally. I'm a mother, a Nurse Practitioner, and a Postpartum Depression/Anxiety and PTSD survivor. This work is important. We need to take care of our mamas. Please join our tribe.
