Up to 1 in 5 moms will experience a mental health issue like postpartum anxiety or depression. Moms who live in poverty and lack adequate social support are at increased risk of PMADs.
As an Ambassador for 2020 Mom, a maternal mental health advocacy organization striving to close gaps in care, I decided to host a Valentine's Day diaper drive for my community to spread the love to local moms in need.
Together we donated 4,296 diapers collected within 10 days to moms via partner org 914 Cares. Feeling the love and very grateful! 💕
