The Life With Baby Workbook was created by mental health professionals that are parents as well.
Meet Amy & Erin
Between the 2 of us we have...
30+ years of professional mental health experience
4 babies in our arms, 1 in our hearts
Years of experiencing postpartum depression and anxiety
Daily struggles as parents!
This workbook is our passion, our baby, our way to support parents and hopefully make a difference in this world.
We met while serving on the Board of Directors for The Pregnancy and Postpartum Health Alliance of Texas (PPHA) and quickly became connected through our shared first-hand struggles with postpartum anxiety, depression and PTSD, and our desire to support parents in having a healthy and thriving postpartum experience. We knew there had to be a better way to transition into parenthood. The idea of this postpartum plan originated on a post in note when we were both pregnant with our second child. This postpartum plan was our lifeline to not have the same traumatic experience after having our fist children.
We combined our personal experience with our professional mental health focus, and put pen to paper to build out this postpartum plan as a tool that could be used by others. We developed a collaborative care model to support parents together as a postpartum doula and therapist, in addition to other providers including OBGYNs, midwives and other mental health professionals.
Every aspect of this workbook from the content , design, editing, and everything in between was created with love by professionals that are parents themselves to help support your journey. Thank you to everyone that made this workbook a reality.
