Team Member Tara's Charity of Choice: 2020 Mom
"The 2020 Mom organization is very dear to my heart as I suffered immensely with postpartum depression and anxiety after the birth of my son. It was a daily struggle that took the joy out of being a first time mother for an entire year of my life. It wasn't until I found resources to help that I began to feel myself again and love being a mother. This is and was not how anyone deserves to live their first year with a new baby.
Mental health disorders in general aren't taken seriously enough and postpartum ones are particularly swept under the rug. Less than 15% of women seek help. I make it my mission to talk about what I went through and allow others to realize how sadly common it is. Organizations like 2020 Mom are bringing this issue into the limelight in hopes to spark change."- Tara
A bit more about this awesome charity:
2020 Mom was founded in 2011 and has evolved as a national organization with a mission to close gaps in maternal mental health care. 2020 Mom has issued a national call to action that sets forth an aggressive new path for solving what some have called one of the biggest public health concerns of our time: the silent maternal mental health crisis impacting up to 20% of expecting and new moms.
The Blue Dot Project’s, Blue Dot, has become the national symbol for maternal mental health survivor-ship, support, and solidarity. Maternal mental health disorders like postpartum depression are the #1 complication of childbirth.
