As most of you know this is a cause near and dear to my heart. It is also deeply personal, having suffered (and currently suffering) from postpartum/perinatal anxiety and ptsd. By participating in this "climb", I am hoping to bring awareness to these conditions and mother's mental health in general. If I had known that there were more perinatal issues out there than just postpartum depression, I perhaps would have recognized my need for help much, much earlier. It is my hope that women and their loved ones become aware of these conditions and no longer have to suffer in silence because they don't know what is happening to them and they don't know there is help available.
Please donate for my climb and help me raise awareness. Thanks!
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.
