Postpartum Perspectives
BONUS: Alison's Story - From Needing Help to Helping Others (Part 2)
Show Notes

Alison Stead is a counselor, spiritual development mentor, and writer.  She experienced postpartum depression, or as they say in her native UK, postnatal depression or postnatal illness, with all three of her births.  Due to those experiences, Alison went on to become an advocate and supporter of moms who find motherhood a challenge.

If you haven't heard the first part of Alison's story, go back and listen to the episode on her personal experiences with postpartum depression (Part 1).  This second section picks up where the last one left off, as we focused our conversation on her experience organizing a volunteer program to help new parents in her community.
