5 Ways To Connect With the Postpartum Depression Mom Community

Share Button

postpartum depression communitySince it’s a fresh new year, I thought it important to share a reminder of how to connect with the postpartum depression and postpartum anxiety and postpartum psychosis community (and PTSD, and OCD, etc.) we’ve created here at Postpartum Progress.

You’re reading this which means you’re already coming to our site. We’re so glad you’re here! Please know that we support you and we understand and we know you’re going to get better. Really.

We’d also love for you to join us over on Facebook. Over there I often share links to stories that I don’t have time to write about here on the blog, and I’d hate for you to miss out on any of them, like the one I shared today that described what depression feels like. Or this story, from James And Jax, about writing down what you’ve done right as a mother rather than beating yourself up about what you think you’ve done wrong. Please join us.

We have a great Pinterest board called Postpartum Depression Hope, on which lots of Warrior Moms are pinning wonderful things to help get you through the day. (There are already 152 pins. Way to go ladies!!!)

There’s Daily Hope, which is a special email service that sends you an email five days a week for an entire year, each one written by yours truly. I like to think of it as a way for me to hold your hand for a year and let you know each day that it’s going to be okay. Start your year off right and register.

I’m on Twitter as well at @postpartumprog. Over there I generally talk about all sorts of stuff, not just PPD, and I love interacting with everyone. Come follow me!

Also, there’s the Warrior Moms Book Club. If you’d like to join, reach out to Amber at atlantamom930 {at} gmail {dot} com. I think we already have something like 45 or 50 members.

  1. Thanks so much for all you do for PPD Moms, Katherine! I’m sharing this with all the postpartum families I know! Keep up the incredible, inspiring work!:)

  2. This is a really great site, you are so thorough and create a really calm and safe feeling environment. I really appreciate your taking the time to reach out to others. I am a lifelong carrier of insomnia, anxiety, depression, and OCD. And I have an 11 week old baby boy. I chose to stay medicated during my pregnancy and after. I also see a psychiatrist weekly. If I can ever contribute anything just let me know! And thanks again for being out there.
