BENEFITING: POSTPARTUM PROGRESS
EVENT DATE: Jun 20, 2015
I am a Warrior! I have suffered from Postpartum Depression and Postpartum Anxiety and have survived. It all started over 8 years ago with the birth of my beautiful daughter. Only a month after she was born, I entered myself into my hospital's short term psych unit for help. In less than 5 weeks my body had dropped weight due to not eating and constantly vomiting, my brain was coming up with a plan to run away from my husband and beautiful baby girl, crying was at least a 6x/day event. Less than 5 weeks and I had succombed to PPD and PPA.
Please help mothers like myself get help by donating to my Climb. All money goes to Postpartum Progress, created by another mom who suffered and survived, Katherine Stone. For more information on Postpartum Progress, read below:
