WHY I AM CLIMBING...
Because I am healing. Because I love my children and I love being a Mom. Because I want to OWN that my PPD has made me a better Mom. Because I want to pay tribute to all that have helped me during this journey and because I want to inspire other Mom's and the people who love them to be able to get and give the help that will make a difference. I climb for my daughters, Addison Marie and Mckinley Rita and for my supportive husband, Andrew. My heart, my life, I love you. Please join my climb! THANK YOU!!! xoxo - Jenn Ford
Postpartum Progress’ Climb Out of the Darkness™ is the world’s largest event raising awareness of maternal mental illnesses like postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety & OCD, postpartum PTSD, postpartum psychosis, postpartum bipolar disorder, and pregnancy depression and anxiety. Climb Out is held on or near the longest day of the year annually to help shine the most light on perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. The event features mothers and others across the globe joining together to climb mountains and hike trails to represent their symbolic rise out of the darkness of maternal mental illness and into the light of hope and recovery.
