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.
