An estimated 10-15% of new mothers suffer from postpartum depression, something writer, photographer, mother and now postpartum depression survivor, Eran Sudds, is very familiar with. After the birth of her son, Eran Sudds struggled with feelings of inadequacy and anxiety for months.
Two events changed that: an encounter with a sympathetic stranger during a frantic commute and a phone call to the Pacific Post Partum Support Society. The PPPSS reaches over 3500 women and familiar a year, offering various programs for women suffering from distress, depression or anxiety after giving birth or adopting a child.
Just having someone get it made an immeasurable difference and inspired her to pay it forward with The Good Mother Project, a blog and online community of mothers sharing the realities of motherhood with honesty, bravery and heart.
“It’s an opportunity for people to get some beautiful photos that they can take home and treasure. But more than that, it’s about being part of a sisterhood, a collection of moms who understand each other and who understand the struggles we’re all going through,” says photographer and Good Mother Project founder Eran Sudds.
The Good Mother Photo event will be held at the Scotiabank Dance Centre at 677 Davie Street in Vancouver from 2:30 pm to 6:30 pm on November 14th, 2015. Participants are invited to register for their photo session. Cost is $50 per session, with free makeup touch-ups, coffee and snacks provided.
