Postpartum Progress is so excited to announced its 2nd Warrior Mom® Conference, to be held in Atlanta on October 14-15, 2016. In 2015, we hosted 120 survivors of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders at our very first Warrior Mom Conference in Boston. We’re thrilled to say it was a huge success—and so we’re coming to Atlanta for round two! Our second conference is focused on the Warrior Mom community: the volunteers, climbers, blog readers, forum members, and staff that have changed the face of PPD for so many women and families over the last 11 years. We’re calling it Together, Stronger. We can’t wait to see you there! Click here to register.


TRANSPORTATION & LODGING

Our conference will take place at the beautiful Georgian Terrace Hotel situated in midtown Atlanta. We have secured an incredible room rates of $152 per night. You can make your reservation online or call 1-800-651-2316 and ask for the Warrior Mom Conference Rate.

The hotel, situated directly across the street from the historic Fox Theater, opened in 1911. It hosted the premiere gala of Gone with the Wind in 1939 and all of the stars and the director of the movie (with the exception of Vivien Leigh and her lover at the time, Lawrence Olivier) stayed at the Georgian Terrace.

Oh, and did we mention the rooftop pool?
