Supporting: WHI supports Maternal Mental Health Month! for Women's Health Innovations of Arizona


Campaign has ended.


Hello friends,

This organization means so much to me!  Maternal mental health is near and dear to my heart.  I have personally felt the effects of poor maternal health following the births of our two children.  I thought that after our first child was born I would spend my days rocking and singing to him in his nursery enjoying every second of finally having him in my arms. The first weeks after he was born I was in complete shock of how drastically different my life was going to be. I could not handle the immense task of being responsible for such a helpless tiny person.  It was all so overwhelming.  The worst part was that I felt I could not reach out for help.  I was too embarrassed and ashamed that motherhood was so difficult for me.  I was fortunate that I had already seen a counselor for dealing with issues around the loss of my father who happened to specialize in maternal mental health. She helped me immensely and I felt more prepared for the birth of our second son.  I have to admit that even feeling prepared I still needed support after his birth.  I support the mission of Women’s Health Innovations to provide care for women dealing with issues surrounding pregnancy and postpartum.  I have chosen to raise money for this organization to reduce the stigma around reaching out for help when dealing with maternal mental health and to make it easier for mothers and families to get the help they need.

All my best,
