I was going to share today about the battle of loving your life and wanting to leave it all at the same time. It was a huge component of my struggle with postpartum depression. A constant tug of war that literally hurt. Literally made it hard to breathe or function. And that is a story worth sharing, but some fun things have happened today that I would rather share…
I think I have mentioned a time or two how much I love my midwife. If you are not sure, check out a few of these posts.
And today, my love of my midwife, has gained national attention. I recently discovered, on twitter, @teammidwife. They are the advocacy group of the American College of Nurse-Midwives. I found out I could join them, receive a badge for my blog, Team Midwife, top right hand side, and monthly newsletters on midwifery information.
Team Midwife is also on facebook. And recently I saw a post where they were looking for stories on why people love their midwife. So I sent mine.
And today it was published!!!
Check out why I love my midwife. Mine is the fourth one down. And then my midwife forwarded me an e-mail she had gotten about promotional materials for her practice. And there was a flier with Patrice and I on it!!! Midwives across the nation can order or download fliers to give out. With a bit of my story on it! Yay!!!
I am so thrilled. I am thrilled to support midwifery and hopefully raise postpartum depression awareness.
PS–I would also love your help in sharing this post and information.Survive til you Thrive!
