Introducing My Newest Blog Badge

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.

Patrice’s Birth Story

Patrice’s Name

Mamas and Midwives

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!

  1. Awesome, Charity! This is a great example of how God used a struggle for His good. Hope you're still doing well.

  2. The Lord is so good to take our mess and use it, huh? I am doing well. I had to go back on some meds, but am finally, for the first time in a year, in a good place.

    ACNM said they really liked my story because it showed midwives can continue to provide care after birth, which most people don't know. I like that it promotes midwifery and brings up PPD. And has a cute picture of Patrice!
