Evelyn Chavira: About PPD

  • Evelyn Chavira is a mother of two, engaged to her love, and works in the medical field. 
  • On this episode, Evelyn bravely shares her experience with Postpartum Depression. She describes what it has looked like for her in her day-to-day, how it has impacted her relationships, and how she is working to dive into community to make sure she isn’t coping alone. 
  • This conversation with Evelyn is by no means meant to be a complete representation of PPD, as we know people experience it in different ways. However, we do hope her bravery in sharing her experience will open the door for more women to be able to talk about it and seek help if they are struggling. Evelyn’s goal is to help women remember they are not alone in this, because she knows the personal struggle of feeling like it was her fault or that something was wrong with her. If you are struggling with PPD we hope you will seek help, and if you love someone who is struggling with PPD we hope this encourages you to love them well.

Episode 7: Jennifer Washington

  • Jennifer is a Nurse, a fitness junkie, and loves all things natural. She is married to her military man, Billy. Billy and Jennifer have a sweet 8 year old named, Jordan.
  • We discuss the season when Jordan was diagnosed with autism, and what that has meant for their family. Jennifer talks about educating herself, finding resources, and advocating for Jordan in situations where she needed to be his voice.
  • Jennifer reminds us that in a world where it is so easy to compare everything, including our children, it is so important to focus on our child individually and their specific growth. Jennifer’s goal is to inspire and encourage other moms who may be in a similar situation to keep fighting for their children.
