EVENT DATE: Jun 21, 2014

THE STORY:

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. Also, Climb Out of the Darkness kicks ass. Just so you know.

I struggled with postpartum anxiety after the birth of my son, Alro, a little over three years ago. I had wonderful family support and did get professional care, and it was still the hardest thing I have ever been through. There are so many mamas out there who don't know that what they have is common and treatable. They have little to no support and are scared and feel alone. Postpartum Progress can help these mamas, and I want to support them too. I climbed last year and raised about $350 dollars through donations from amazing family and friends. That climb was a climb of reflection on how much I had been through, how far I had come, and how I am forever changed by PPA.  I am pregnant again, and I know that the support and information provided by Pospartum Progress will help me through future challenges, as I am more likely to have anxiety issues again because of my previous bout with PPA.

This year my climb will be a rallying climb, a way to remind myself that I am strong and I can get through whatever comes my way, a celebration of the love for my son and my daughter. I hope my climb will also have the trickle down effect of supporting another mama who may find herself in crisis, become informed, seek out help, and begin her own climb out. 

Thank you to all who donate!
