Talking about PPD is hard.
Especially if it’s your PPD.
And it saves lives.
This video is here to help.
This conversation ranks right up there with The Birds and the Bees talk; you can’t hardly wait…
I made this short video so you will have something to show your husband, your in-laws, your boss, or anybody you want to be honest with. So now instead of trying to find “just the right words” or worrying about whether you make sense at all, you can avoid the awkwardness and just click play.
You might have seen this video on several other corners of this site. Did you watch it already?
Mothers who watch this report relief. Some because they see themselves reflected in it, others because it made a tough conversation go better than they expected. I’m so grateful that mamas find this helpful, and want to make sure you find it and watch it. It was really scary to make this presentation in front of strangers and cameras, so it better be good!

If you are just beginning to talk about your PPD, a good place to start might be the PPD SpeakEasy monthly support chat.
To celebrate my 40th birthday (which is also the first anniversary of this website), there will be three (3!) SpeakEasy calls in September.
Mark your calendar: in addition to the usual 2nd Tuesday evening call (Sept.13 at 8:30 pm) we will have extra chats on Sunday September 18 at 2:00pm, and Tuesday September 27 at noon (all times are Eastern). The intention is to cater to the needs of mothers with varying lifestyles and time-zones. So if you’ve been wanting to call in, hopefully these added dates and times will help this happen. I can’t wait to hear your voice, I hope you can join the conversation. This page contains the how and what of the phone chat.
