Today, we are reminded to act in favor of the Melanie Blocker Stokes MOTHERS Act.

If you haven’t already done so, please take the time to follow up with these actions so we can make sure our voices are heard. Everyone reading these blogs knows how important this is!

Here’s the bill. (Thanks, Katherine)

Susan Dowd Stone has helped make this easy by providing links so please call your Senator in support of S324.

And don’t forget to add your name to the petition that is set to be presented to U.S. Senators the week of Mother’s Day. Do it now.

U.S Senator Robert Menendez from New Jersey has put his stamp on this widespread effort:

“Postpartum Depression is a condition that is not only more widespread than most realize but also more debilitating than most realize. We need to make sure these mothers are fully supported and informed, rather than scared and alone. Working together with a nationwide community of mothers, we are so close to enacting this important legislation into law. What we need is an intense dose of public pressure. This Blog Day helps reinforce the type of grassroots movement that will increase the pressure that is needed, and I commend the participants. I invite mothers, fathers and anyone else who believes we need to better support those with postpartum depression to contact their Senators and urge them to vocally support S.324.”
