Please join me in shining the light on perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, the number one complication of childbirth in the US, by sponsoring my Climb this year!
DONATE to support two great causes and help perinatal families get the resources and support they need to thrive and be well. Many families lack social support during this tender time of recovery after birth and during the adjustment to parenthood. It is a time of immense emotional and physical need and transition that often goes unsupported regardless of a family's demographics. New parents need support. Without it they are vulnerable to mental illnesses. 1 in 5 will develop a mood disorder that can last for months and even years when left untreated. PSI and GBCV work everyday to change that. With the right resources, provided freely by these mission driven nonprofits, a new mother who feels alone, ashamed, and hopeless can recieve vital resources and information and the message, "you are NOT alone, you are NOT to blame, and with help you can be well again."
The Climb out of the Darkness will provide vital funding for Postpartum Support International and Good Beginnings of Central Vermont. These two organizations support families with new babies get the help they need in the postpartum period.
For an in depth look at Good Beginnings' beautiful impact in the Central Vermont community please check out our feature in KidsVT.
Postpartum Support International's Climb Out of the Darkness is the world's largest event for raising awareness of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, while raising money and building community.
You are not alone. You are not to blame. With help, you will be well.
