Postpartum Depression is not Postpartum Anxiety.

Postpartum Anxiety is not Pregnancy OCD.

Pregnancy OCD is not Postpartum Psychosis.

… and on and on.

Like any illness, whether it be mental or physical, there are varying characteristics, fluid symptoms, and every sufferer manifests the illness a bit differently.

Our goal at the Bloom Foundation for Maternal Wellness is to create a world where every mother gets the help and support she needs to survive and thrive through any type of maternal mental health issue. We do this through education, training, outreach, and knowledge sharing.

We are excited to share our Survivor Stories Campaign as part of our Knowledge Sharing Initiative!


Launched in August 2018, on IGTV, Survivor Stories is our video series of moms sharing their personal stories with pregnancy and postpartum mental illness.

If you are struggling, check out their stories. If you are concerned about someone you love, listen in. If you are a clinician, a therapist, a counselor – these women will give you insight.

See more Survivor Stories by following us on Instagram or Subscribing to our Youtube Channel

If you are a survivor and would like to add your story to help reach others, please email shannon@thebloomfoundation.org
