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
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:

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