Greetings from Team Jersey Shore!
We are Climbing!
I am so excited to announce the First Annual Climb out of the Darkness for the Jersey Shore Area, benefiting Postpartum Support International New Jersey Chapter, will be on Saturday, September 7, 2019 at 10:00a at Bayview Park in Brant Beach, NJ (Tentatively). This event will be hosted by Miindful Mama Inc., a local business whose mission is to help Moms who have experienced PMAD transform from Postpartum to Powerful.
We hope you will join us in making this Event a success that we can continue for many years to come!
This year, Team Jersey Shore is raising money for PSI New Jersey, which means 100% of the funds raised by you will stay within the state to help build resources, train providers and support new parents in our local area! Our Goal is $13,000!!
Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders happen to ONE MILLION WOMEN in the US alone each year. Unfortunately, this cause receives very little support, yet these illnesses can have a lifelong impact on the health of both mother and child if untreated, and only 15% of moms get treated.
Postpartum Support International is a registered 501©3 nonprofit organization that is laser-focused on pregnancy and postpartum mental health. We have three key focus areas: raising awareness, providing direct support to pregnant and postpartum families, and training professionals and support group leaders. Your participation means that more parents will get the information and support they need, and healthcare providers will get information that is critical to identifying perinatal mood disorders of all types.
The event will include free gentle yoga classes, meditations, and speakers about all thing’s motherhood. We will have local businesses owned by Moms represented to offer their products and services to the Maternal Community. There will be activities specifically for children as well. The goal of this event is to come together as a collective of Mothers and those who support them to raise awareness and create connections amongst the community. Each Vendor is asked to offer something that will benefit mothers as a gift the day of the event. We will be handing out bags for the first 100 Mothers to arrive to collect your items.
