Stroller Strides of Mt. Laurel/Moorestown

With the recent news headlines highlighting the tragic losses of Kate Spade and now Anthony Bourdain, it's no secret that depression and mental illness are REAL - and as common as heart disease, diabetes, broken bones, and other physical conditions. The brain is no different, and women are more susceptible to mood disorders than men. "Depressive illnesses are serious medical illnesses that affect more than 19 million American adults age 18 and over each year. Depression is a treatable medical illness that can occur in any woman, at any time, and for various reasons regardless of age, race or income" (Mental Health America 2018). Here's a few facts on women + #mentalhealth from Mental Health America: - Approximately 10%-15% of all new mothers get postpartum depression - Women experience depression at roughly twice the rate of men - Depression in women is misdiagnosed approximately 30 to 50 percent of the time - Fewer than half of the women who experience clinical depression will ever seek care - Approximately 12 million women in the United States experience clinical depression each year - About one in every eight women can expect to develop clinical depression during their lifetime - Depression occurs most frequently in women aged 25 to 44 "Many factors in women may contribute to depression, such as developmental, reproductive, hormonal, genetic and other biological differences (e.g. premenstrual syndrome, childbirth, infertility and menopause)...Social factors may also lead to higher rates of clinical depression among women, including stress from work, family responsibilities, the roles and expectations of women and increased rates of sexual abuse and poverty" (Mental Health America 2018). We know there doesn't always seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel. We know postpartum mental illness is on the rise. We know that society pressures can sometimes make life feel like too much. We know insurance and doctors + family and friends aren't always enough. We know the motherhood is real. But, please, if you are struggling with changes in thoughts or behaviors and feel unlike yourself, talk to someone. Ask your doctor, friends, family, your insurance, or online resources for options, advice, recommendations, tools, medication therapy, yoga, support groups, bio-feedback, treatment...help. If you or someone you know may need this today, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is open 24/7 free of judgement and free of charge. Call 1-800-273-8255.

Hey, Mama....we see those dark circles because you were up all night breastfeeding, bottle warming, comforting a sick babe, getting kicked 2349 times co-sleeping, or lying awake too late just for some extra quiet time. We see you've traded sleep to take care of your tribe. We see those mom buns and grown out highlights because who has time to sit in the hair salon for 4 hours anymore?! We see you spending time with your kids, hands-dirty and hearts full. We see you and your dry shampoo obsession and are sending RIP sentiments to the bubble baths that have turned into baby wipe "showers." We see your DVR filled with all your favorite shows you haven't got gotten to watch in months because your TV time is filled with prime-time Paw Patrol, Boss Baby, or Sophia. We see you trading in fancy purses and designer shoes for backpacks, diaper bags, and comfy tennies. We see your lipsticks you've traded for chapsticks and jeans you've traded for leggings. WE SEE THE WAY YOU MODERN MOM IT THROUGH LIFE AND WE FREAKING LOVE IT. Your selflessness is amazing, empowering, and inspiring. Happy Mother's Day, Mama! We hope you feel loved more than measure, peace among the chaos, and find some time to pamper yourself today or someday soon; no one deserves it more. #HappyMothersDay #FIT4MOM #monthofmama
