Due to a personal situation, I am currently unable to blog here at the moment. I am hoping to get back to blogging soon.
In the meanwhile, I would like to continue sharing stories and experiences of Postpartum Mothers (and fathers) here at My Postpartum Voice. Over the past four years, I have worked tirelessly to reach out to those who are struggling in an effort to help them feel as if they are not alone. While there is four years of material here, new stories and new perspectives are always welcome and may reach someone I may not be able to reach myself.
If you are interested in writing for My Postpartum Voice, please email me at mypostpartumvoice(@)gmail.com. I never edit for content, only for grammar and spelling. I believe when you are writing about your Postpartum experience, it should be in your voice, your words. I also never limit the length but prefer most pieces to be not much longer than 800 words. If your story is longer than that, it’s fine, we can certainly post it in sections. Topic is completely up to you but absolutely must relate to the Postpartum Mood & Anxiety experience in some way. Tips, personal stories, research, opinion, etc. – all welcome. Humor too – I’m a big fan of laughing your way through the darkness.
Also, you are more than welcome to submit anonymously. I realize that the Postpartum journey can be frightening and you may need to share but not wish to do so publicly. I will absolutely respect your wishes in this area and work with you to ensure your privacy is protected.
I look forward to hearing from you and hope that even if you are not ready or able to share a story, you’ll pass this on to someone who may be able to or ready to share theirs.
Thank you for reading, for supporting, and for sharing.
