Mother's Day Rally for Mom's Mental Health

Tomorrow, fellow blogger Katherine Stone will be hosting a special Mother's Day rally at Postpartum Progress. Her blog is undeniably the best source of postpartum information on the web, which every mom-to-be, new mom, and their families need to be reading religiously.

Following her own recovery from postpartum OCD, in 2004 Katherine launched her blog. In 2008, WebMD honored Katherine as a web hero.

Tomorrow's event promises to be especially noteworthy. As Katherine explains in her blog:

The Mother's Day Rally for Moms' Mental Health is an online event featuring 24 open letters to new mothers on the importance of maternal mental health. All of the letters will be written by survivors of and experts on perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, including postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis, as well as by others who care about the emotional well-being of moms and moms-to-be.

Each hour, on the hour, for 24 hours straight, Postpartum Progress will post a different "Letter to New Moms". The letter writers were given a blank canvas to share their humor, experience, tips and ideas, focusing on the mental health of women during pregnancy and postpartum.

I'm proud to be included in Katherine's list of "mommy bloggers." What am I doing there? Stay tuned for my big announcement, tomorrow, Mother's Day.

Again, important reminder: Mother's Day Rally for Moms' Mental Health.
