Follow me to Mama’s Comfort Camp?

Things have been quiet around here. That’s because I’ve been busy with the Mama’s Comfort Camp. Do you know about the Mama’s Comfort Camp? It’s where I share my Self-Kindness work with hundreds of moms from around the world, in a responsive, interactive refueling station you can access from anywhere, anytime, via a private facebook group. Mama’s Comfort…

World Mental Health Day 2012

Today, writers, bloggers and speakers around the world are talking about mental health. The World Mental Health Organization chose to focus this year on depression. Twitter and Facebook will be full of awareness-raising and stigma-busting. I love the power of the internet to do that. Let’s Change the cultural conversation together. If you are struggling today…

Pride in the Invisible + Comfort + Sisterhood

My sweet friend Charity (who wrote this guest post here) is hosting a Mother’s Pride Carnival (what an awesome idea!) at her blog Giggles and Grimaces.  Charity rocks, y’all, and you can follow her on twitter at @signingcharity  I am proud of many things but  not always as proud as I should be. And while…

Yuz takes off the mask

I am beyond thrilled to have my dear friend Yuz here today, all the way from Melbourne Australia. We met online through #ppdchat and fell in love with each other. We have so much in common, PPD and being Jewish are just the tip of the iceberg.  This post is about telling her story on her…

Long Live the Empress: Alexandra of Good Day Regular People

Look darlings, Alexandra is here! I adore her, and her blog Good Day Regular People is one of the most comforting, nourishing, loving places in the whole wide internet. Case and point: on Valentine’s day most of the internet made me want to puke, but her post? Made me do something good that day.  And…

It’s February, Got Self Love? (words of wisdom from Jaya the Trust Coach)

My dear friend Jaya works with people on living life from a loving stance of unwavering trust. I worked with her a couple of years ago and she helped me with my relationship with my husband. What I learned from her helped me fight less: fewer fights with him, and more importantly, fewer fights with myself. Jaya writes…

International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day

Today, November 19, is International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day. I started to write a special post for today, but I just can’t finish it.  As someone who lost her birth mother to postpartum depression driven suicide, and six years ago almost followed the same path, I am giving myself full permission to not finish this…

Even More Progress: Strong Start Day

Do you know that more babies are born today, October 5 than any other day of the year? I didn’t know this until Katherine Stone told me. Katherine, the warrior mom behind Postpartum Progress. The blog and the non-profit: Stronger families, one mom at a time. Last week I had the privilege of having my words published…

Now that’s Progress!

I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to have a guest post up at Katherine Stone’s Postpartum Progress! It’s only the most widely read PPD blog in the universe… My guest post is called From Suicide to Joy: A tale of three mothers and three birthdays.  I am truly grateful to Katherine for sharing my…

Asking for your help

Asking for help is hard. So hard. Because: Admitting that we need help = that we can’t handle something all by ourselves = we are not the uber-capable being that we wish ourselves to be, that we want others to think of us as. Well, it hurts. We want to be good enough to go at…
