Photos: They offer messages of support to all mothers

Postpartum depression affects about 10-15% of new mothers around the world. The “Good Mother Project” is a series of beautiful photos where mothers send messages of support to other mothers. And an eponymous blog where mothers support and listen to each other without ever judging each other. At the origin of this project, a Canadian mother who also experienced a depression after the birth of her children, and Eran Sudds, a talented photographer sensitive to motherhood. “By sharing our experiences, we learn that we are not alone,” testifies the latter. The “Good Mother Project” brings these stories and experiences to those who need them most. I am very happy to participate in this adventure. ”
