Join our fan page on Facebook. Then you can post comments or questions on our wall and get feedback from our other fans, almost all of whom are survivors, clinicians or mamas who are currently suffering. You can find us at www.facebook.com/PostpartumProgress.
Every Monday at 1pm Eastern and 8:30pm Eastern anyone can join in on a Twitter chat with other moms going through PPD/anxiety and antenatal depression/anxiety. Just use the hashtag #ppdchat. For more information, visit http://mypostpartumvoice.com/ppdchat-guidelines/.
