In my world, the whole month of May will now be for mothers. This year I am kicking off my May is for Mothers with Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week.
In honor of this week, I am participating in the #realmotherhood 5 day challenge with The Blue Dot Project. This organization is raising awareness of Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders to remove the stigma and shame that leaves so many mothers suffering in silence.
Every mom deserves to be seen, heard, and supported. The way we get to the point of no mom left behind is by understanding the complex experience of motherhood including the mental health disorders that can come with it and giving women all of the treatment they need and deserve.
To learn more about this amazing organization, participate in the challenge, or get your dot in support of this incredibly important cause, head on over to their website…
