We care about you and how you're doing.
This website is created by people who use drugs (PWUD) for people who use drugs.
We are committed to creating a community where people who are pregnant or parenting, and using substances are supported and validated and loved.
We know that navigating the health care, child welfare, and criminal systems can be traumatizing and exhausting. But we want you to know that
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
There is a community of parents and providers who can help.
If you are feeling overwhelmed, that's ok. But don't give up. Ask for help.
YOU DESERVE COMPASSION + SUPPORT.
It’s all too easy to be extremely tough on ourselves; we need – at points – to get better at self-compassion. Here is an exercise from the School of Life on how to lessen the voices of self-flagellation
and learn to appreciate the role of self-care in a good and fruitful life.
Why Harm Reduction? It's a Way Forward.
