Join us at Chelsea's for an evening of empowerment revolving around the dark roads of postpartum depression, anxiety and psychosis. These feelings are rea, they're often swept under the rug and they're important. Shannon Ward, certified Postpartum Doula and New Parent Educator speaks on how she has a passion and a calling for helping new parents through this sometimes unnavigable time period.
"My purpose for the event is to help create an open dialogue about the perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. What are the differences between them, how can someone distinguish one from another, how can a friend or family member create that dialogue in a kind and loving way, and what are the best ways to seek treatment if someone is indeed experiencing one of these diagnoses. This is an important topic for me for many reasons, one being as a postpartum doula and New Parent Educator it is important to me that people feel empowered with information so they can make informed decisions! Secondly, I have personally felt it's impact in my life. Thirdly, I would love to see people talking about some of the struggles women and men can face after welcoming a baby into the world. If we can create a culture that talks about all.the.things we will all be better off!!
In my work I hold space for new parents, provide evidence based information pertaining to postpartum recovery and newborn care, and help with general household tasks so they can spend that special time with their baby!
