Our Story

Life With Baby is our passion, 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 mental health plan originated on a post in note when we were both pregnant with our second child. This detailed 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 mental health plan as a tool that could be used by others. We developed a collaborative care model to support parents together as a postpartum doula/mental health coach and therapist, in addition to other providers including OBGYNs, midwives, psychiatrists, therapists, doulas, lactation consultants and other perinatal health professionals. 

 

Every aspect of Life With Baby from the workbook 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 dream a reality.
