Supporting PMHAPOC July–September
Our online sales donations are still going strong! Over $100 has been donated to non-profit organizations so far. Through September, 10% of all online sales will go to the Perinatal Mental Health Alliance for People of Color, a program within Postpartum Support International. The mission of PMHAPOC is to support professionals and families of color with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.
Their work is SO important. Womxn of color experience perinatal emotional complications/PMADs at TWICE the rate of white women, and 60% of womxn of color do not receive any treatment or support services for their PMADs. (Source: PMHAPOC)
While we often talk about this issue in data and numbers, it’s so important to remember that while these issues do have vast implications for communities and society as a whole, at the core is an individual. A mother or parent who is struggling without the support they deserve; support from someone who understands. We’re proud to support this organization making a difference in a big way to expand access and build capacity among perinatal professionals to better support individuals, families, and communities of color.
