Welcome to the Mom & Mind Podcast!

This podcast focuses on the Maternal Mental Health struggles related to becoming pregnant, being pregnant, birth and early parenthood.

The goal of this podcast to put all of this info out in the open. There’s no need to hide these very human experiences…so many people deal with these struggles. So, the podcast provides real life stories of moms, dads and family AND we will talk with experts, leaders and advocates in the field of maternal mental health and maternal health.

Special Episode: MMH Awareness Week! Just me, chatting with you!

Hey everyone, welcome to maternal mental health week! I wanted to come in and have a chat with you guys about all of the awesomeness happening to raise awareness during the month of May and also touch base about why we need this awareness.

The Mom & Mind podcast goal is first and foremost to get information and awareness of maternal mental health issues out in the public. I really really believe that we deserve to be aware and educated on these topics so that we can make informed decisions about our health and mental health.
