(I received an email from Natalie this morning informing me that her interview had been rescheduled to air tomorrow instead! Tune in!)

Natalie Dombrowski, author of Back to You, Founder of S.P.E.A.K., and fellow blogger, will be on-air with Chicago Public Radio this Thursday Friday at 9:00a Central time.

She’ll be sharing her experience with PPD, anxiety, and motherhood just in time for Mother’s Day.

“I know that the more we talk about our experience the more mothers out there seem to relate and feel the¬†burden of isolation, guilt,¬†and shame lessen.” says Natalie about her upcoming interview. AMEN to that!

If you’re in Chicago, you can listen live on WBEZ 91.5 FM. If not, you can listen online by going to the WBEZ website and clicking the “Listen Now” button at the top of the home page.

Thanks Natalie, for continuing to share your experience. With the comfort of your courageous voice, many mothers will no longer feel alone.


Natalie Dombrowski is SPEAKing

Natalie Dombrowski is a brave mama.

I found her today because Unexpected Blessing is listed as a helpful site in a sidebar for an article about her in the Southtown Star.

She has survived so much – traumatic childbirth, hospitalization for postpartum depression, and is now dedicated to helping other mothers through speaking events and her new book, Back to You (available at amazon, by the way).

Her first event is coming up this Thursday and if you’re in the Palos Park area of IL, I would highly recommend checking it out.

Here’s the event info:
