Doing the Walk again!
June 22, 2017
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 for months to "climb" out of my own personal darkness after having Andrew - who was a beautiful, healthy, happy baby who slept well & ate well...I couldn't understand why I felt so stressed out and depressed when everything was going so well. I was lucky to be diagnosed early and get emergency help (yes, I know what the inside of a psych ward looks like.)
But with time, a great husband, mother, several specialists, and some other new mommies help, I got better. Everyone can. We are now planning #2!
Help me 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.
Thanks for your support!
