BENEFITING: POSTPARTUM PROGRESS

EVENT: Climb Out of the Darkness 2014

EVENT DATE: Jun 28, 2014

Lesley Neadel

THE STORY:

After Rebecca was born, I fought a battle against severe postpartum depression and anxiety.  It was the hardest time of my life, at what should have been one of the most enjoyable times, with my newborn baby girl. Finding Postpartum Progress helped me through that battle, and I am proud to call myself a Warrior Mom - and a pregnant one, at that!  This year's Climb means so much to me, as I will be six months pregnant - and Postpartum Progress is as important a resource to me during this pregnancy as it has been since my last.  I am reading inspiring stories of women who had their second babies with no recurrence of the illnesses that plagued them after their first, and feel so positive and confident about how this "do-over" is going to go - but of course - you never know. Only time will tell how I fare, but I know that this time I am more prepared, and better armed, to fight whatever comes my way, thanks to the work that Postpartum Progress does.

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.

In Hoboken on Saturday, June 28th, at 11AM, we will be gathering at Maxwell Place Park, and taking a brisk walk (feel free to jog - the six-months-pregnant woman will be "briskly" walking) down to Pier A and back up, for a picnic lunch.  Bring friends, family, kiddos, dogs - everyone is welcome!  There is a playground where we will be starting / ending, and a dog run, and a kickass view of NYC.

Whether you can join us or not, please do help us raise money so that Postpartum Progress 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.
