YOU MATTER.

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.

Suicide Prevention starts with a conversation we're not having on our mental health due to Stigma.
The first step to breaking that silence is dispelling stigmas of fear, judgement, and shame about our internal experiences.
We achieve that by proclaiming It's Ok Not To Be Ok!
