My Postpartum Story


I never expected to face the challenge of postpartum depression. But it was indeed part of my mommy-journey, as it is for 1 in 7 new mothers. Postpartum depression (PPD) tried to steal my joy of motherhood, but I fought back. And I won.

I won by getting the treatment I needed and embracing everyday mommy-moments with my children. God had a purpose for my PPD experience. Now nothing inspires me more than encouraging moms and educating others about PPD and other maternal mental health conditions. 

Watch my story below, and contact me to share with:

  • moms groups & expecting parents
  • maternity care & mental health providers
  • those who care about new moms & dads and their families

As a PPD survivor with clinical training in maternal mental health from Postpartum Support International (PSI), I bring a unique perspective to sharing with others.
