The Issue: Mothers Suffering from Postpartum Depression

Postpartum depression affects 10%–15% of all mothers within the first year after giving birth, according to a report from Postpartum Progress. Data from the Mayo Clinic indicates that postpartum depression can lead to overwhelming fatigue, severe mood swings, and an inability to bond with the new baby.

The Campaign: Helping Mothers Communicate with Babies

If this Grassroots campaign raises $550, then Connections: Health.Wellness.Advocacy can train the staff of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program in Baby Signs, which they will then teach to parents. The Baby Signs program provides an important resource for families who need help communicating with their children aged 0–2. Learning to communicate with their infants and young children can also help mothers with postpartum depression form stronger bonds. Furthermore, the Baby Signs program increases the communicative abilities of young children, thereby reducing their tantrums and frustrations. Each additional $10 raised will go toward providing Baby Signs classes to parents in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program.
