I’m so excited to share with y’all that the fabulous Kathy Morelli will be joining us on Monday evening at 8:30pm ET to talk about the upcoming Postpartum Support International Blog Hop for Postpartum Maternal Mental Health Awareness.
Kathy is a tireless advocate and supporter for women in the birth realm. She does so much on both a professional and volunteer level that I wonder if she ever sleeps. In addition to her own counseling practice, she also runs BirthTouch®, volunteers for PSI, and founded the #MHON chat. This is in addition to every day life stuff. Like I said, I wonder if she sleeps!
On Monday, Kathy and I will be chatting about the blog hop, but also about the importance of sharing your story, regardless of your station in life. It’s a tough decision to share your story but as both Kathy and I have discovered, it can also be a very empowering one.
In a post about her upcoming guest spot on #PPDChat, she expresses how she struggled with the decision to share her struggles as a mom who fought postpartum depression. Because she’s a therapist, she says, they are trained not to share their stories. But she stepped out from the shadows and shared. For that, I am grateful, and I know several others are too. It’s such a relief to know we are not alone.
I’m looking forward to Postpartum Support International’s Blog Hop for Maternal Mental Health Awareness in May.
I’m really looking forward to kicking it off with a wonderful chat with Kathy at #PPDChat on Monday evening at 8:30pm ET! I hope to see you there!!!
