Hi there! I’m Courtney, the host of the weekly podcast Adventures With Postpartum Depression. I live in Pasadena, California with my husband Nathan and our three-year-old Pippa and fat nine-month-old Julian. I had postpartum depression after Pippa was born and spent four nights in the psychiatric unit at the hospital. That experience was … interesting… but I learned a lot, and I learned a lot more about myself during my recovery. In fact, I grew so much as a person, that I can honestly say I am grateful that I had postpartum depression.
Now I’m a stay-at-home mom who is very passionate about helping moms with postpartum depression. I run a free peer-to-peer support group in Pasadena. (If you are local, stop on by!) I am writing a book about my experiences with postpartum depression. And most recently, I started a podcast to share my story and the stories of other moms who have struggled with maternal mental illness.
