This week, Rita shares her story of postpartum depression and anxiety. Rita had a history of depression before she got pregnant. She felt anxious during her entire pregnancy. After her son was born, postpartum depression hit her immediately. Since watching the documentary When the Bough Breaks, she has wanted to help others moms with a maternal mood disorder. Thank you, Rita, for sharing your story on the show! Show notes will be available at PPDadventures.com. If you would like to share your story on an upcoming episode, email Courtney@PPDadventures.com. The intro music is "Cute" by Bensound.com. Thank you for listening and have a great week.

For the past couple of weeks, I have been sharing the audio version of my memoir, Adventures with Postpartum Depression. We made it! I've had a head cold and/or allergies, but at last, this is the final installment. In this final chunk, I read Chapters 26: Shameful and Chapter 27: Shameless (in which I chronicle my triumph over the shame I experienced as a result of having a mental illness); Chapter 28: There's Also a Podcast (in which I relate the origin story of this very podcast - which yeah, feels a little meta but what are you going to do?); and the Epilogue, which brings the story of my adventures with PPD to an end.

If you have finished and enjoyed the audio version of this book, please leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads. Reviews really help other readers connect with the book and is an easy way to support my book and podcast. Now that it is summer, I will be taking a little break but never fear, I will be back July 10-ish with interviews from other moms who experienced a maternal mood disorder. Thanks for listening!

For the past couple of weeks, I have been sharing the audio version of my memoir, Adventures with Postpartum Depression. I don't have the time or resources to put together a fancy-schmancy formal audio version (yet!) so instead, I'm sharing it on the podcast. In this installment, I read Chapter 23: How CBT Helped Me Annihilate Anxiety, Chapter 24: Suddenly Meh (in which I describe how I dealt with the boredom of motherhood) and Chapter 25: My Continued Adventures with Momentum (how I continued pushing my recovery to a higher and better level).

I hope to get this all done and shared by the end of June. If you can't wait to hear the rest of the book, head over to PPDadventures.com for your free copy of the ebook. Or head over to Amazon to get your ebook or paperback today to support my work. If you have finished and enjoyed the book, please leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads. Reviews really help other readers connect with the book. Thanks for listening!

I don't have the time or resources to put together a fancy-schmancy formal audio version (yet!) so instead, I'm sharing it on the podcast. In this installment, I read Chapter 13: The Great Escape and Chapter 14: The Eeyore Ward. These chapters describe more of my experiences in the psych ward and include my turning point, when I started to feel like myself again. Then I read Chapter 15: Breastfeeding Blues, which describes my return to "regular" life and my decision to end breastfeeding.

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!
