Happy as a Mother Website, Podcast and Workshops

I wanted to share a good source I have found for those looking to parent without the constant anger, and losing their cool and who want to enjoy parenting more. This one is aimed at mothers but currently, due to COVID, I think everything is online right now anyways through zoom, podcasts, etc. Even when in person they probably allow men, or could supply some other good resources for fathers as well I am sure.  Help for postpartum depression, anxiety and rage | Happy as a Mother

Assistance for Women Starting a Business & an App Connecting Women Across Fertility & Motherhood!

“When Michelle Kennedy founded Peanut in 2017, she had one goal: to help support women.

Three years later, that mission remains and we see real women, build real connections, and share real stories on Peanut every day.

We want to further those stories by launching a fund that invests in very early-stage businesses; businesses led by women who are mothers, expectant mothers, and those trying to conceive.

We intrinsically understand the pain points of trying to build a business while building a family. We see the invisible labour undertaken by women every day, we see the motherhood tax, and we see how that impacts women’s development into entrepreneurship.

We believe that Peanut is home to the new face of entrepreneurship because our community is motivated by a greater calling: their families.63%

Despite companies with female founders performing 63% better than those of their male peers,

only 2.7% of venture capital dollars went towards female-founded companies in 2019.

We’re committed to challenging this bias and facilitating change.

The route to that first cheque is never easy, but with the right help and support from the beginning, we can level the starting line.

What we’re looking for

  • An important mission that solves a problem disproportionately affecting women
  • Founders who are underrepresented in the venture capital market
  • Companies that are pre-seed companies (think of this as the elusive ‘friends and family’ round)

How we can help

Funding

Mentorship

Networking

We strongly encourage women of colour or those from minority groups to apply.
Download Peanut and stay tuned for the opportunity to pitch using our new feature, Video Chat, and meet our incredible investment committee.

Support Groups for Postpartum Mood Disorders

I just started a support group on my page, but I realize it may take a while to build some members. Please join and share with others and once enough join there should be a lot of support and posts. In the mean time here are some related groups on Facebook that already have many members you can join. I was a member of a Facebook support group when I was recovering and it was comforting to talk to others all over the world experiencing the same thing:

Also, please join my private support group if you think you have had or currently have a postpartum mood disorder for private discussion and support, you are not alone!

The PSI online support groups meet everyday. Different hours every day. Excellent facilitators. Go to postpartum.net and covid resources and scroll down till you see online support groups. You have to register but it’s free.

“PSI is launching a new monthly online support group for dads! Our online groups are here to help you connect with other fathers and father surrogates. We hope that you will talk and listen to other dads as they process their experience (the great parts and the not so great parts); learn about helpful tools and resources and realize you are NOT alone.
Whether you are going through stress, adjustment to parenting, Daddy Blues, or trying to figure out how best to support your partner, our groups are here for you.
Our next meeting is September 4th and our meetings will take place on the first Friday of every month at 7am PST/10am EST!
