We’re In This Together photo project sends messages of hope to Post Partum Depression and Anxiety sufferers

The days are getting dark, but it’s also the season of joy and hope. Fittingly, Eran Sudds and The Good Mother Project have launched this year’s photography project, “We’re in this Together.” They’ve partnered with the Pacific Post Partum Support Society in Vancouver to create a heartfelt series of photographs that offer messages of encouragement, hope, support and love to new mothers. An estimated 1 out of every 6 women and 1 out of every 10 men experience troubling depression or anxiety after birth or adoption of a child. They want moms and dads to know they are not alone.

So, if you could go back and offer words of encouragement to yourself as a new mother, what would you say?

If you witnessed a loved one feeling overwhelmed or anxious after the birth of their new baby, what message would you give to them?

If you experienced postpartum depression or anxiety and made it through, what would you like to say to other mothers experiencing it now?

Those wishing to take part in this project are invited to attend

“We’re In This Together” 

Saturday, November 25, 2017
