This week, Sam White shares her postpartum story. After a difficult pregnancy, Sam quickly became depressed after giving birth to her son. When her son was a toddler, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I loved talking to Sam and was so inspired by her journey. Show notes are available at PPDadventures.com. If you would like to share your story on a future episode, please email Courtney@PPDadventures.com. I am currently scheduling interviews for April and May so that you can continue hearing stories all summer long. The intro music is "Cute" by Bensound.com. Thank you for listening and have a great week.

This week, Katie shares her further adventures with postpartum depression. We first heard about Katie's adventures in Episode 43. Check out that episode to hear more detail about Katie's initial journey and thyroid issues. Since we last talked, Katie has made some major dietary changes and experienced vast improvements to her overall health. She also recently launched the Natural Postpartum Support Podcast. Katie has done a lot of research about the root causes of postpartum depression and identifies six root causes of postpartum depression during our conversation.

This week, Nikki shares her story of postpartum depression and anxiety. Nikki experienced anxiety after the birth of her first child, but she had a history of anxiety. She assume the postpartum anxiety was within the range of normal new mom feelings. It was not until her second child was 10 months old that she realized something had to change. Last year, she participated in the Climb Out of the Darkness. This year, she's leading Team Dacula in the Atlanta area. Shownotes are available at PPDadventures.com. You can find links there to Nikki's Team, her fundraising page, and Maternal Mental Health Support, the FB group she runs. Bravo, Nikki, for all you are doing for moms in the darkness, and thank you for so bravely sharing your story. If you would like to share your story (it's so cathartic), email me at Courtney@PPDadventures.com. The intro music is "Cute" by Bensound.com. Thanks for listening and I hope you have a lovely week.

This week, Vivianne is back to tell us more about her adventures with postpartum onset bipolar disorder. This episode is EXTRA adventurous because gardeners were working outside my parents’ house during the interview. UGH. You will get to hear me go through all sorts of emotions and frustrations but in the end, I remembered that life is uncertain and this was just one of those unexpected twists. Show notes will be available at PPDadventures.com. If you are interested in sharing your story on a future episode, email Courtney@PPDadventures.com. I would love to hear from you! Back episodes are being moved to Patreon.com/PPDadventures. For just $2/month, you can support the show and hear all the adventures. Once I have enough supporters, I am going to pay for professional transcripts - another way to get these stories into the world where they belong. The intro music is “Cute” by Bensound.com. Thanks for listening and please remember: you are not alone.

This week, I talked about a lot of good stuff. I gave my latest report on weaning off Zoloft: I'm done! I took my last dose in December 2017. And I feel great! I saw my psychiatrist and we decided I did not need to schedule a followup. So that's it, folks, I am no longer a patient with postpartum depression. Damn, that feels good! But I am not done with postpartum depression, oh no, I will keep podcasting as long as there are stories that need to be shared and keep raising awareness because there is still work that needs to be done. I also talk about The Mom Center, the 2018 Climb Out of the Darkness, give a book update, and wax poetic about my adventures with mindfulness and meditation. WHEW. So good to be back, and I am so excited to bring you lots and lots of interviews this year. I have a half dozen scheduled over the next couple of weeks, and if you are interested in sharing your story on an upcoming episode, email me at Courtney@PPDadventures.com. Show notes will be available at PPDadventures.com. (I'm typing them right now, I promise.) The intro music is "Cute" by Bensound.com. I love you and hope you have a wonderful week.

If you are interested in sharing your story on a future episode, please email me at Courtney@PPDadventures.com. The intro music is "Cute" by Bensound.com.

This week, I talk about my progress weaning off Zoloft. I recently jumped from 50 mg to 25 mg, with zero negative side effects. It has however taken me eleven months to go from 150 mg to 25 mg. Exercise has been helping me feel good. So has Buddhism. I recently finished Pema Chodron's When Things Fall Apart and I feel forever changed. Show notes are available at PPDadventures.com. Also: I'm doing interviews again! If you would like to share your story on a future episode, please email Courtney@PPDadventures.com. The intro music is "Cute" by Bensound.com.

This week, I share some thoughts and tips for enjoying the holidays as much as possible without sacrificing your mental health. Remember: there's always next year!

Show notes will be available at PPDadventures.com. The intro music is "Cute" by Bensound.com. Thank you for listening and have a wonderful week.

This week, I share my tips for starting a mom-to-mom support group. I started a group over three years ago, and it has helped me process a lot of my postpartum experiences.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
