POSTPARTUM PROGRESS
POSTPARTUM PR… SAYS:
I’m a bad mommy. Not because…
I’m a bad mommy. Not because I had a perinatal mood and anxiety disorder. That wasn’t my fault, of course! But because more than 800 amazing people like YOU supported Postpartum Progress’ first ever Climb out of the Darkness fundraiser last summer and it took me this long to thank you. Where have my manners gone?

Please let me, during this week of Thanksgiving, tell you how thankful we are for you. Let me tell you how much your support meant to us and to moms all over the world suffering from postpartum mood and anxiety disorders. Climb Out of the Darkness wowed and surprised us. Warrior Moms raised over $40,000 in just three weeks, energizing our Board of Directors and battalion of volunteer moms to double down in our efforts to grow our non-profit.

Technology-driven and with a fierce focus on moms, we aim to double awareness of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders by 2019. Thanks to your support we have already created a fantastic infographic (we're still tweaking it, so you'll see it soon!) that shows the downstream effect of untreated postpartum depression and anxiety on children. We are in the process of updating and expanding our blog as well as including foreign language versions. We're also developing our patient and doctor educational materials and much more.

And beyond Postpartum Progress and equally as important, your donation helped your family members, friends and coworkers who've had perinatal mood and anxiety disorders to STAND PROUD. They have battled or are in the process of fighting these illnesses not just for themselves but for their families. It is an exhausting effort to heal mentally and physically all while simultaneously combating the stigma of having a mental health issue and often times with lack of access to qualified professional care.

Warrior Moms are my heroes. Thank you for helping us to support the thousands of moms from around the world who benefit from Postpartum Progress' work each day.

So while I may be bad at thank you notes, I’m good at fighting for causes I believe in. And let me assure you that by standing behind your Warrior Moms and Postpartum Progress you are joining me in standing up for families everywhere.

THANK YOU. Happy Thanksgiving!

In gratitude,
Deborah Rimmler, Board of Directors, Postpartum Progress
