Hardy Mom


With 7 kids ages 10-32 and multiple health challenges, Jen's got a unique perspective on how to live well and get things done, even when it's tough.

 

How does that help you? She shares her tips and tricks that she's learned over those years - what really works and what doesn’t - because you  want to focus your energy where it makes the most impact. As a Catholic Mom, she’s learned that a focus on faith is important to living a quality life, and it’s important she shares how to incorporate that into daily living.

 

Whether you’ve got physical challenges, like migraines, diabetes, fibromyalgia etc. or you’re struggling through anxiety or depression, Jen can help you live well. According to the Oxford Dictionary, the word Hardy means: "robust; capable of enduring difficult conditions.” And that's what we are, Hardy Moms. Want more?

Today I'm talking with Diana Collins of The Always With Me Foundation

Diana Collins is many things! Mother to two girls, wife to her best friend Daniel, PPD survivor and postpartum doula. She was simply living life as it came to and never really dealt with any of her bad emotions until she got her big awakening when she lost her best friend, Sabrina to Postpartum depression.

She was sitting in that lonely hospital bed after yet another suicide attempt, and vowed to Sabrina that she will make sure no more mothers will have to struggle alone! When she made that commitment, The Always with Me Foundation was founded and has been helping mothers everywhere! Her passion is to educate everyone about maternal mental illness and break the stigma!

The signs of post-partum depression:
Feeling severely sad
Feeling hopeless
Sleep loss
Suicidal thoughts
Not motivated
Feelings of being worthless

If you need help:
Go to http://www.postpartum.net to find a local support group
Talk to the people around you & let them know you need support
Don't be ashamed. Many moms are struggling with the same thing. You are not alone

Diana's advice for moms with post-partum depression:
Let go of that guilt
Let yourself be vulnerable
Let yourself reach out to people who get it

Diana's superpower is: Healing
She's doing some AMAZING things with The Always With Me Foundation.
