I have been sharing a little bit on social media about my latest venture, an online course to prevent postpartum depression and anxiety. I haven’t really announced it here yet, but yes, it’s live! The beta testing round filled up quickly after I shared on Instagram and Facebook. Happily, preliminary reviews from the beta testers have been overwhelmingly positive. If you just want to check it out, I made five of the lessons free previews. For those wanting to take the full-course, I recommend buying it soon as the early-bird pricing will go up after the official launch later this summer.
One beta tester shared: “The Skills and Strategy section is so supportive. It left me feeling hopeful and gave me good structure for ways to refine my self-care moving forward. Overall, I feel like this course is something every new mom or mom-to-be could benefit from, learning ways to understand, reflect on, and self-guide their transition to motherhood in a healthy way. Becoming a mother can be messy and difficult, and this course helps women anticipate, embrace, and work through that transition, as well as recognize when and how additional clinical supports could be helpful. Abby has such a gentle and clear style of coaching. She exudes such calmness/wellness it is nice to know that she is a mom and has been through this transition to motherhood and has come out the other side. Seriously, this course inspired me to take better care of myself and be more understanding of my needs.”
In related news, I went up to LA yesterday to share with Ergobaby and their community about tips for preventing postpartum depression. We recorded live on their Facebook page but you can catch the replay here:
