Christine's Story Through Postpartum, Anxiety, Colic, Stress, and Healing Through it All
Christine Carrig is the director of Carrig Montessori School in Brooklyn, NY. She holds a master’s degree in Early Childhood Education as well as a Montessori certification.
This episode covers the personal story of a mother who has been through postpartum anxiety, severe colic, and complicated family transitions. Through her difficulties, she has thrown herself into learning about perinatal mental health challenges, supporting herself, and helping other families.
Christine has trained as a postpartum doula through both DONA and Ayurvedic Mamas. Most recently, Christine founded The Family Flow, a community that offers online courses for parents of young children, with the aim of helping parents understand and support their children so they can guide them through the messy terrain of development. Christine lives in Queens with her husband and four young children.
This is a great podcast for moms who are just starting out as well as moms who have had multiple births, along with changes in friendships and relationships.
As a follow up to Postpartum Depression & the Transition to Motherhood (Part 1), Katie, Stacy and Mai interview Dr. Ekta Escovar, a pediatrician with a commitment to mental health. Dr. Ekta differentiates between baby blues, postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis. Dr. Ekta also talks about common PPD symptoms and screening tools. She also provides a number of resources that should be helpful in identifying and understanding PPD, and ultimately finding help when you or someone you love needs it.
