The Site is Back Up (Whew!) plus More News You Can Use!

Postpartum Progress was down last week, and let me tell you, it was AWFUL.  Clicking the link and seeing a blank screen was supercalifragilisticexpeali-AWFUL.  I could just imagine someone who needed help trying to get to a page and being unable to, and it was pretty much too much to take.  In the end, we had to actually stop the transfer of PP to WordPress and will try again after I come back from the BlogHer conference.

I’ll be going to San Diego this week, and am so happy I will be able to see and spend time with so many Warrior Moms in person, including Miranda, Katie, Molly, Casey, Beth Anne, Jenna, Morgan, Cristi, Shannon, Alena and SO many more.  So many women who have been courageous in openly sharing their stories of postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, antenatal depression and more.  There will be lots of hugging.

Heads up!  If you live near San Diego and are a survivor or sufferer of postpartum depression (or a related illness) and would like to meet me, I’ll be at a special Happy Hour sponsored by the wonderful organization Postpartum Health Alliance on Wednesday night.  It will be at Extraordinary Desserts on Union Street from 5:30 to 7pm.  Hope to see you there!!

Also, I’m really proud to have been featured by More magazine this week online at More.com.  I hope you’ll check the story out as I really want to send as much traffic as possible to thank them for doing a piece on postpartum depression.  Your help with that is much appreciated.

  1. You're back! I can see how agonizing that would be. I had someone contact me and ask me for help a couple of days ago and I referred her here. I told her it was down but that she should definitely check it out.
    I saw your story on More yesterday and loved it! I stumbled it because it sums up so much of what I love about you.
    And speaking of which, I'm going to hug you at BlogHer too :)

    Love your audio about psychotherapy! I referred someone to your site last week as well, and didn't know what was going on when she said it wasn't working! I took a look and it was a blank screen!
    Glad you are back and there is a place to refer ppl online again!
    awesome!
    take care, Kathy

    The day I was first hospitalized with a psychosis, I had taken a Zoloft for the first time and quit breastfeeding cold turkey because I feared what I may be passing to my baby. Well, that was a mistake for me and landed me in the hospital. My purely breastfed baby (at 4 months old) began taking formula from a bottle from that day forward.
    Formula may not equal breast milk in every way, but it has saved the lives of many babies and probably mothers, too.
    Thank you for this post.
