Seeking Guests for #PPDChat

From the Desk Of

Hey, y’all!!!

Perinatal Mood Disorders are a lonely road to travel. We have all been there and we have all heard other mothers say the following phrase:

“I felt so alone.”

Thing is, we are not alone. So.NOT.ALONE.

With this approach in mind, I am expanding #PPDChat to include guests in addition to the regular supportive chats. So, in addition to using #PPDChat for support throughout the week, community members will be able to chat with experts, survivors, and advocates.

Guests so far have included but are not limited to:

Karen Kleiman, founder of Postpartum Stress Center

Claire, founder of Life With a Baby

Cristi Comes of Motherhood Unadorned & AFSP of Washington

Text4Baby and Board Member Colleen Craft

Kathy Morelli of Birth Touch

and many other knowledgeable and compassionate folks dedicated to supporting women and families as they navigate the perinatal period. It’s been a blast chatting with them and sharing additional insight and knowledge.

Are you an expert, an advocate, survivor, or representative of an organization supporting families through Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders? Know someone who would be a perfect fit?

Talk to me about chatting with #PPDChat. We are a volunteer run peer-based support chat, talking every Monday at 1pm and 8:30pm ET via Twitter. Read more about #PPDChat guidelines here. Typical guests join us in the evening but if day is better for you, we can accommodate your schedule. If you’re new to Twitter, we have a quick start guide and are willing to work with you to get you up to speed.

How to throw your hat in the ring:

Email me at mypostpartumvoice(@) with #PPDChat Guest Request as your subject line and we’ll get the details ironed out.

Looking forward to this new chapter of #PPDChat with you!
