It has been proven that Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders affect up to 20% of women during pregnancy or after birth, making it the number one complication of childbirth.  



At Cherished Mom, we believe there’s much room for improvement in educating moms and families about the possibility and risk of developing a maternal mental health mood disorder.



Our programs help to raise awareness, fill the educational void, and end the stigma about pregnancy and postpartum mood disorders.



Our mission at Cherished Mom is to Promote awareness and education about perinatal mental health and the importance of self-care to new moms, families, healthcare professionals, and the community.

At Cherished Mom, we are dedicated to raising awareness about maternal mental health disorders. You can make a significant impact by booking Kristina Dulaney, the founder of PPP Awareness Day, for speaking engagements or interviews. Together, let’s spread awareness and support for maternal mental health to make a difference and save lives.
