As we enter into the month of December, Jennifer announces her new initiative to donate to a different charity each month. How can listeners help? By reviewing the podcast, of course! This month, Jennifer will be donating $3 to the charity Every Mother Counts for every review written on iTunes, so be sure to subscribe and write a review. Jennifer welcomes to the show Jen Schwartz, founder of Motherhood Understood, a blog aimed at supporting mothers, teaching self-care, and promoting real, honest, and open conversations about the not-so-glamourous side of motherhood.
In this episode, we talk about the emotional and physical toll that postpartum depression and anxiety can have on new mothers. In fact, one in seven new mothers experience mental health issues post-childbirth. Jen speaks openly about her journey through postpartum depression, from her diagnosis and treatment to how she is doing today. She recalls the moment she felt the need to start a forum of support and understanding for mothers everywhere. Through Motherhood Understood, Jen’s goal is to educate and prepare women for the emotional complications that sometimes accompany childbirth by creating a community of empathetic and compassionate mothers.
