Meet our Founders and Volunteers
Our motto is “Keep the conversation going, stop the shame”, which we do by spreading awareness and supporting all those effected by a Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorder (PMAD).
Kim Manfredi, Co-founder/President & Peer Facilitator

In 2016 she realized her calling to help other mothers suffering in silence and the need to bring to light a better understanding. "We need to shatter the stigma and support mothers, children and families affected".
