we believe. . .
that every mother is doing her best
that every person who reaches out to us is courageous
that postpartum mood disorders are real
that postpartum mood disorders may be destructive and sometimes deadly
that postpartum mood disorders can be treated
that empathy, compassion, advocacy, and education are powerful tools to support families afflicted by postpartum mood disorders
that the path of motherhood looks different for everyone and that we can support mothers and families who need help acclimating to new roles
that mothers and families can learn to enjoy their new roles
in the power of community to provide support for mothers and their families in times of hardship caused by postpartum mood disorders
that mothers experiencing postpartum mood disorders are not weak, unprepared for motherhood, broken, or "bad moms"
that "even in the midst of their struggling, their worthiness is not on the table" ~Brene' Brown
