This week, Rachel Duff, a single mom, shares her postpartum story. She opens up about a lot of difficult issues, including miscarriage, relationship issues with her ex-fiance, money troubles, and self-harming. Trigger warning: during her darkest days, Rachel cut herself with a blade. In January, she started taking Wellbutrin and she is starting to emerge from the darkness. This is an intense, inspiring episode. Thank you, Rachel, for being so brave and honest. Show notes are available at PPDadventures. My memoir is also now available as an ebook on Amazon. Just search for Adventures with Postpartum Depression if you want to buy the ebook to support my work. The intro music is "Cute" by Bensound.com. Email Courtney@PPDadventures.com if you would like to share your story on a future episode. Thank you for listening and I hope you have a lovely week.

This week, Laurie Syphard shares her story of postpartum depression. After the birth of her first daughter, she experienced PPD, primarily through extreme anxiety and obsessions. After the birth of her second daughter, she did not experience any PPD. During her recovery, she had to stay briefly at the hospital. She talks about the different things that helped her recovery, including advocacy for maternal mental health. Show notes are available at PPDadventures.com. (This week, I'm actually getting the notes published before the episode which is a shocking amount of togetherness that will never happen again.) If you'd like to be on my email list, and get notified when I publish my memoir, you can do that at PPDadventures.com as well. If you would like to share your story on a future episode, please email Courtney@PPDadventures. The intro music is "Cute" by Bensound.com. Thanks for listening and I hope you have a lovely week.

This week, I talk about my continued adventures with anxiety. Although I'm much less anxious than I was before I had postpartum depression, I recently discovered some buried anxiety after I gave up my food addictions. So now I am physically and emotionally losing weight! As I work through this latest batch of anxiety, I have done a lot of thinking about the difference between stress and anxiety. I also share some tips about the things that have been helping me become a less anxious mama. I will be starting back up with interviews next week. If you would like to share your story on a future episode, email Courtney@PPDadventures.com. Head over to PPDadventures.com to sign up for the email list of follow me at IG @Courtney.Novak and facebook.com/ppdadventures/. If you want to hear me talking some more, check out the April episode of Natural Postpartum Support (available now on iTunes). The intro music is "Cute" by Bensound.com. Thanks for listening and I hope you have a lovely week.

This week, I give a personal episode about my overall health. In January, I had epic PMS and decided to quit sugar and caffeine. That improved my moods enormously. I did not have any mood swings with my February cycle but instead, I had some insomnia. (Yay.) After a lot of soul searching, I realized that I had been using sugar to numb my anxiety. Yes, I made a lot of improvements on the anxiety front during my recovery from postpartum depression, anxiety and OCD. But overeating kept a lot of anxiety hidden from my conscious self. Now that I have vast improvements with eating, the hidden anxiety is coming out to play. I have started taking mirtazapine again to sleep (mama needs sleep) but scheduled an appointment with my therapist so I can get to the root of this anxiety. Hooray for continued adventures with anxiety! There are no shownotes this week because my website has crashed and I am yet to start the new one, but my book Adventures With Postpartum Depression will be published very shortly. To stay in touch, follow me on IG @Courtney.Novak or Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ppdadventures. Email Courtney@PPDadventures.com if you would like to share your story on a future episode. The intro music is "Cute" by Bensound.com. Thanks for listening and have a wonderful week.

She saw her doctor the next day, went on Lexapro, and felt better very quickly. Now she is leading Team Orlando for the 2018 Climb Out of the Darkness. Thank you, Kelly, for sharing your story!

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.

step 1:


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

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.
