THE STORY:

THE STORY:

As most of you know, I suffered from perinatal mood and anxiety disorders before and after the birth of my twins. Scot also suffered the father's version of PPD. Yes, fathers can also get it. I bet you didn't know that. In fact, there are lots of things most don't know about this ugly disease. It's more than just crying. 

Unfortunately, most doctors are not educated with up-to-date information regarding perinatal mood disorders. Therefore, us women, and our families, are not educated and we all suffer. It is the number one complication of pregnancy and is the least diagnosed/treated. Thankfully, Postpartum Progress is trying to change that. Please donate to help raise money for Postpartum Progress and help further women's healthcare. 

On June 21st, the longest day of the year, I'm climbing a mountain, along with other surviviors, to represent our symbolic rise out of the darkness of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders into the light of hope and recovery. I’m going to climb Mt. Greylock in Western Massachusetts.  It has an elevation of  3,488′ and is the highest natural point in Massachusetts.  

Thank you for reading this and please help support a wonderful organization. http://postpartumprogress.org/
