So here's the thing, being a parent is tough.
But let's just focus on mums for a mintue. Boy! Do we go on a journey- physically, mentally and emotionally. Then finally the baby arrives and everything's rosy. Hmmm, not for everyone. For some mums, 'just' being a mum is really tough. Its no wonder when you are tasked with the most important job of raising children with no training?
Climb Out of the Darkness is the annual awareness raising and fundraising event for Postpartum Progress, a nonprofit focused on supporting pregnant and new mums 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.
We plan to 'climb' Snowdon in our fitness session! Through a series of climbing exercises we will total up all our steps and hopefully reach the top.
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!
