BENEFITING: 2020 MOM
EVENT DATE: Apr 29, 2017
Maternal Mental Health disorders affect 1 in 5 women. Postpartum depression is the most common complication of childbirth. Despite the prevalence, maternal depression goes largely undiagnosed and untreated.
This fundraiser raises awareness for maternal mental health disorders, which include depression, multiple forms of anxiety and the more rare postpartum psychosis. Please join us in walking together and help us reach our goal!
Both as a mother of two young children and a perinatal healthcare provider, Abigail is passionate about maternal mental health. She unexpectedly suffered from postpartum anxiety after the birth of her second child, and is now writing a book about her experience. Abigail is thrilled to be marching with 2020 MOM in the March for Moms on April 29, 2017!
