Episode 39: "Take it one day at a time, you aren't alone" with Kate Abbott, author of Walking After Midnight: Into and Out of Postpartum Depression

Today I chat with author, writing teacher and mama of 1, Kate Abbott.  Kate recently released her memoir Walking After Midnight: Into and Out of Postpartum Depression which I had the privilege of reading before our chat.  Her memoir is so beautifully written, and I could relate to her story so much.  I know that her story will resonate with so many moms and particularly those that have experienced Postpartum Depression/Anxiety. 

In her episode we chat about:

  • Her experience with bed rest and her fast birth story
  • Her new memoir & postpartum depression story
  • The importance of knowing the signs of postpartum depression and sharing them with your family, partner and close friends so they know what to look for.
  • Her journey to starting medication and how it changed her whole life when Henry was 8 months old.
  • How we need to talk more about mental health
  • A new postpartum idea of bringing a gift card to a food place for new families
