A true labour of love, our anthology was born from the overwhelming response to our #ThisIsMyStory campaign where we asked you to send us your stories of your journey through perinatal mental illness. The stories contained within are meant to help anyone struggling to know that they are not alone. The stories span the perinatal continuum from conception to pregnancy to postpartum and reflect the lived experiences of miscarriage, still birth, tokophobia, prenatal and postpartum depression, anxiety, panic disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, and psychosis. Also included among the stories are chapters written by top perinatal mental health experts who offer their insight advice including Karen Kleiman, Dr. Simone Vigod, Dr. Ariel Dalfen, Dr. Ryan Van Lishout, and many more.
