We invite you to join us for a NEW FOZA PODCAST - Episode 20 recognizes National Maternal Mental Health Month, #MMHMonth, and we’re highlighting a few of the resources #FOZAInc has aligned with to learn, to grow, to collect data and to broaden the mission of #PPDAwareness.
Please tune in. MMH has had some exciting successes as well as continuing challenges as together we support and encourage mothers, birthing people, families, professionals, and communities.

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.
