Have you heard the buzz about Postpartum Progress‘ Climb Out of the Darkness 2015 and wonder what it is all about? I am leading a climb in Green Bay, Wisconsin. This is why I lead Team Green Bay. This is why I climb.
Each year, 1 in 7 women face maternal mental illness. That is a staggering statistic. In my personal experience, I’ve learned that once you face maternal mental illness once, you are likely to experience it again. I was diagnosed with postpartum depression nearly eight months after C was born. I fell through the cracks the first time. My OBGYN only asked me if I was “feeling depressed” at my 6-week appointment. There is so much more to depression than feeling depressed.
