Amy and Max

Your generous support gives hope to patients like Amy

Facing the birth of her first child, Amy was overwhelmed with fear. 

“I didn’t understand how I could maintain the life I had with a baby,” she shares. “I’m supposed to be happy and glowing and excited, and I didn’t have any of those feelings, so I thought something was really wrong with me.”

Amy knew she needed help.

Thanks to the philanthropic support of our community, Amy found the care she needed to learn how to connect with her son, Max.
