On Mother’s Day, I feel hidden in the shadows

In an effort to support women who suffer from perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and/or postpartum-PTSD, we are sharing photos from our community. Photos that put a face to depression, anxiety, PTSD, mania, self-harm. Only by stepping into the light, by sharing our stories, our hearts, and our pain can we acknowledge the journey of mothers. Only by showing that we know what it’s like, can other women begin to feel safe to seek help. Only by being vulnerable enough to be so strong, can other women feel that strength.
