* *trigger warning (PPD, depression, suicide)**
Black Maternal Mental Health Week 2021 we had a very important discussion with Co-Founder and Executive Director, Sarah Bloomquist.

Launched in 2016 - Moms Mental Health Initiative is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping moms navigate pregnancy and postpartum depression and anxiety by sharing information, connecting them to resources, and providing peer-driven support.
