Kimpatorin Aid's mission is to provide support to pre and postpartum women, including those suffering from postpartum depression, by ensuring that the physical and emotional needs of the women and their families are met.
Kimpatorin Aid was founded in 1981 by Rebbetzin Sarah Unger, to support Kimpatorins, women who have just given birth. The organization provides housekeeping help, baby nurses, respite, and more. It is a lifeline to new mothers and families that allows them to welcome their new babies with joy.
Kimpatorin Aid was born when Rebbetzin Unger, ever attentive to the needs of others, heard that a woman had just given birth. She cooked a pot of soup, packaged it, and knocked on the family’s door. The new mother opened the door just a crack. But though she was able to block the Rebbetzin’s view of the mayhem inside, she couldn’t hide her tears – or her exhaustion. She was falling apart!
Instead of celebrating the birth of a healthy baby, this woman was crying! Rebbetzin Unger arranged for the woman to get help – and soon learned that many new mothers needed support. She set out to provide it.
