Pushor Mitchell is lucky enough to work with several non-profits in our Community. Community Involvement is incredibly important to the Pushor Mitchell family. We are currently working with two amazingly talented humans whose goal is to support the mental health and well-being of mothers. Pushor Mitchell has supported the #mentalhealthmovement for decades. A short excerpt of the Birth Your Power story is below.

“Becoming a mother is one of the best moments in life, it can also come with unexpected sadness. It is reported that 80% of women experience postpartum blues, and 1/7 women experience post partum depression.

For a new mom seeking support, she is often faced with barriers to access appropriate care. There are waitlists for programs, financial barriers when seeking private care, lack of resources in smaller communities, in additional to emotional barrier of leaving the safety of home.

The vision for Birth Your Power is to end the stigma around postpartum mental health and ensure every mother has access to the support she needs.

With the generous help of Pushor Mitchell, Birth Your Power has created a 12 step online program for new mothers to support her on her motherhood journey. The program is created by professionals in postpartum mental health and is accessible anywhere and anytime.

Postpartum mental health impacts the entire family. We are here to ensure no mother ever feels that she is alone.”

The founders of BIRTH YOUR POWER are Amy Rauscher and Hannah Day.
