Mariah | pronouns: she/her

Mariah was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis at the age of 5 and rheumatoid arthritis at 25. She started her blog, From This Point. Forward. in 2008. Today, she works to empower patients and raise awareness about arthritis and other chronic illnesses. After learning firsthand the challenges of facing pregnancy and motherhood with RA, Mariah has become particularly passionate about supporting women with chronic illnesses who are or want to become mothers.

Mariah runs Mamas Facing Forward, a website with a Facebook support group, that provides a supportive community for moms (and moms-to-be!) living with chronic illnesses. She is a part of Joint Decisions, writes for a number of RA-related sites, and tirelessly works towards improving knowledge around sex and illness.
