Postpartum Support International. You are not alone.
At PSI we want you to know that we are very aware that recent events in several states, from hurricanes and tropical storms to forest fires, have caused extra s...tress for many. For mothers and families struggling with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, these stressors are a particular burden. Now, as always, PSI is here for you.
Please do not hesitate to call the warmline—800-944-4773—and within a few hours receive a call back offering support and resources. State coordinators are available as well, including in the affected states. Coordinators can provide you with information about support and treatment options in your area. If you can get online, the PSI website is also a great source of information, for example about the weekly, free, and anonymous mom’s chat, as well as online support groups in both English and Spanish.
You are not alone.
I LOVE this a Trillion Times +
"Normal. Normal. They kept saying that word normal and I hated it. These people didn't know my whole story. They had no idea what I had been through..."
This is BIG! Raw & Real....
This blog, "Self-Care," shares the traumatic experience of a postpartum mom feeling silenced by the lack of interest in her story. My question is why didn't they know her whole story, why didn't they have an idea of what she had been through (for so many reasons)... this is at the core of her mental health. She shares how she silently screams... No space to be heard, to have a voice, to share her story, to feel safe. If they had known her whole story, they may not have used the word Normal - "Trigger!!!" She was VERY brave, courageous, and so much more... She shares how she seeks out Self-care. What if she didn't. What would her story be then?
This lack of interest in knowing what's in a story is at the core of Perinatal Mental Health. "Tell me your story..." "I need to know your journey to be able to hold space for you...to support you adequately... to create a safe space."

Today, I had the honor to sit next to Ann Smith. What an opportunity to be raw & real. What do you want ask, but your afraid. Break through the barrier, and be brave.
We had the opportunity to speak with Ann Smith, Certified Nurse Midwife and President of Postpartum Support International (PSI) and ask her our questions relate...d to postpartum depression. Together with her answers and the wonderful resources available on the Postpartum Support International website, we put together this two-part series full of answers to questions you probably have about postpartum depression and anxiety.
I LOVE this entire article. Someday when I ask, "Will you sit with me... she will."
"This is when the good stuff comes out. This is when I hear all of those details that almost-teens don’t tell their moms anymore."
