MOMSBLOOM INC
October 30, 2013

My involvement with MomsBloom began about 3.5 years ago. As a Clinical Mental Health Therapist, I was grateful for this non-profit that was accessible to all families to support them during the newborn phase. They have created a beautiful model for offering extended family-like support in our moderns times when families are not always so close together or able to support post-partum families as we did years ago.

Additionally, MomsBloom has been vital in raising awareness locally and nationally about Post-Partum Depression and other Perinatal Mood Disorders and Adjustment Disorders. Cameron's Garden is also providing supportive volunteers to family that experience perinatal loss and infant loss.

I have volunteered with MomsBloom in the past and joined the board in January 2013. It has been a great honor to be a part of the organization in this capacity and work to developing an alliance with BRAINS, where they will be taking residence.

The clients I provide therapy to have found their weekly to biweekly volunteers to be invaluable to remaining connected, probably one of the greatest gifts we can give any new parent - someone who they can connect to. Isolation is one of the hardest things both new mothers and fathers can feel after having a new baby. MomsBloom fills a gap that simply cannot be filled by any other resource in our community. It's wisdom from the past, the idea that it takes a village, provided to all, but especially families that may not qualify for extra services from some of our other great community resources. There are so many moms that don't feel like they deserve this extra special care....while its an extra special service in our community....Moms, you deserve it! To be nurtured means you will increase your ability to nurture your baby with less stress and deeper compassion for yourself. This gives your baby a beautiful transition into the world, and yourself a beautiful and transformational transition into motherhood (even if it's your 5th time!)

It is my sincere hope that for the greater good, MomsBloom's unique and passionate vision will continue to grow and reach more and more families.
