My Bloggiversary present to you


Today is my third Bloggiversary. It’s been a very interesting three years filled with Postpartum Mood Disorders, Cleft Palates, drug addiction, laughter, love, a growing family and God.

Three years ago today, I started blogging to re-frame a pregnancy after experiencing a severe Postpartum Mood Disorder which landed me in the hospital.

Since giving birth, my blog has truly grown and expanded. It has provided solace, information, advocacy, and empowerment.

But, like any three year old, my blog been screaming for some independence and growth lately. (And aren’t we all a little too familiar with that screaming – sometimes you just can’t ignore it, can you? Admit it – sometimes you give in just to bathe yourself in the ensuing peaceful silence too!)

So here we are.

Welcome to the re-birth of my blog.

Welcome to My Postpartum Voice.

What does this mean for you?

It means a lot for you, actually.

I want this to be an active community filled with empowered strong survivor mamas willing to reach a hand behind, across, or whatever direction is necessary to inspire and provide hope to women currently struggling with Postpartum Mood Disorders.

I want us to take full advantage of the social media landscape, to build a forum filled with compassion for every choice a mother can make in her life. Where mothers will be accepted and not judged. A place where moms can come, kick off their shoes, and not worry about being judged for decisions they make in their everyday life.

I see video, photos, interactions, internet radio shows, audio, poetry, fiction, art, and anything else you can imagine.

This community is YOURS.

Let me know what you want to see here and I will do my best to accommodate your request.

You’ll notice the place is plain right now. We’re missing a couple of things:

A logo

A tagline

If you have talent in these areas or are want to suggest aspects of our logo, please do so in the comments.

I do what I do here for you. I’m looking forward to growing our new community together!
