My name is Maria Pellowski and I am a mother two beautiful children under 4 years old. I suffered from postpartum depression with both of my children, but finally got help after my second delivery. I'm so glad I took the help! This year, I was able to attend a screening showing the shocking documentary titled The dark side of the full moon, which raises awareness of motherhood mental health disorders. It inspired me to take an active role in improving awareness and treatment of perinatal mood disorders within my community. I am a registered nurse happily practicing within the Winona Health Emergency Department for the past 5 years. I am currently working toward forming a peer support group for postpartum depression at Winona Health and hope to improve our standard of care with these women and families. I would love the Women of Winona to come together and raise awareness for perinatal mood disorders and help postpartumprogress.org continue to assist warrior moms and leaders like myself!
