Group helps mothers with postpartum distress

Becoming a new mother can be challenging, especially if you’re the one in seven women who experience postpartum depression or anxiety.

After Valrico mom Rebecca Hartley-Woods struggled with postpartum distress, she co-founded The 7th Mom Project, which offers support groups and access to mental health resources for that “seventh mom.”

“We can’t stop the rain for mothers,” she says. “But we can hold the umbrella.”

Give Day funds will help the group reach more moms in postpartum distress and help them understand that they need to take care of themselves to be the best mom they can be.
