BENEFITING: POSTPARTUM PROGRESS
EVENT DATE: Jun 18, 2016
As a 6 year survivor of postpartum mood disorders, Postpartum Progress is an organization that is near and dear to my heart. My first birth in 2009 was a traumatic experience that left me shaken to my core. With support from family, friends, and an amazing doula, I struggled but fought my way out of the darkness. My doula's compassion inspired me to pay it forward by becoming a doula and supporting other mothers through their birth experiences. My VBAC in 2013 was a healing experience for me and helped me to realize my passion for specializing in VBAC support. I will be participating in the climb this year only a few short weeks before our third baby is expected to arrive. I hope to be an inspiration to other mothers to keep fighting, keep living their life, and keep climbing their way out of the darkness.
