Celebrating through Giving Back – Today: The Postpartum Resource Center of NY


Welcome to Day 3 of Celebrating through giving back. You can visit Day 1 and Day 2 by clicking on them.

Today, we’re celebrating the Postpartum Resource Network of New York. Run by the incredible Sonia Murdock, the Postpartum Resource Network of New York has been making a difference for families in the state of New York for quite some time. According to the website, Sonia Murdock and Emily Sampino started the Postpartum Resource Center of New York, Inc. when:

“… in 1998 after they each experienced gaps and recognized the needs in education, treatment and support services regarding postpartum depression/psychosis.”

Since then, they’ve grown from dreaming about fixing the gaps & support services to actually doing it on a daily basis. The Postpartum Support Network of New York offers a helpline and provides referrals to help & support groups. They are also intensely involved in advocacy for the increase of care for women and families in the state.

Go check them out. If you’re local, you can join or volunteer. Every bit helps to fight the stigma and this is one organization that really packs a punch.
