THE STORY:

Welcome warrior moms and family members! 

As many of you know, after Lincoln was born, I suffered from PostPartum Anxiety. Now, one-year later, I consider myself a "warrior mom" and survivor! It has become a passion of mine to raise awareness for other moms and their families suffering from a postpartum mood disorder.   

Am SO HAPPY to be a part of the second annual Climb Out of the Darkness! This event raises money for Postpartum Progress, a nonprofit I recently joined the board of.

The event will take place in Maryland on June 21st at Meadowwood Park.  My friend, Laurie Bardon Syphard and I are the "sherpas" this year leading the event.

Please consider joining this climb, and helping us reach our goal for Maryland of $10,000!

Ladies - you are NOT alone!!!! :)  

 

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.

You don't necessarily have to climb a mountain, by the way, to join in.

  • You can ride a mountain bike on a trail.
  • You can do a nature walk.
  • You can hike a mountain trail or walk along the beach. You can stand outside  and let the sun shine on your face.

No matter what you do, we still call it your Climb, because it is a symbol of your climb out of the darkness of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, whether you are a long-time survivor or someone who is still climbing or someone who cares about the health of pregnant and new moms.

 

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!
