THE STORY:

Jess Pierson wrote -

Let's show our support to women who have experienced or will experience Post Partum Depression! I am a survivor of post partum psychosis (a very rare form of PPD) & it is by far the scariest thing I have ever had to experience! I wouldn't wish it upon my worst enemy. Thankfully I had medical help & an extremely loving, supportive group of family and friends that were there to help me out. I am thankful for my PPD experience because it has opened my eyes to the MANY people who battle with Post Partum Depression/Anxiety/Psychosis, the list goes on... My hope from this experience is that we can raise PPD awareness, show our support for people who are going through it, and get rid of the negative stigma that comes with PPD. No one should have to feel ashamed or guilty for the way that their body's hormones are making them feel. Birth is a beautiful thing, and everyon'e bodies react differently from it, but if we could provide more resources to women who experience PPD, they could be helped, allowing them to enjoy and support their new born baby. Let's have fun and help a good cause! If you would like to join the team and walk with us, AWESOME! We'd LOVE to have you-just click "register"! If you'd like to donate, AWESOME! That's so nice of you! -just click "donate"! If you'd like to do both, EVEN BETTER! Thank you so much for all of your help! You are LOVED and you are APPRECIATED :)
