Cynthia is the founder and moderator of LactPsych, an international email discussion group for dual professionals whose work significantly addresses lactational psychology. She is a member of the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress and is certified in acute traumatic stress management. She sought these credentials because of her concern about the impact of traumatic birth on maternal and child mental health and development. She is also a member of the Ask the Experts panel on Mothering magazine's website, answering questions about maternal mental health and breastfeeding. In this Mothering Live Chat, “The Hardest Job You’ll Ever Love: Myths and Facts about Maternal Stress and Depression,” Cynthia will talk about depression and its symptoms, myths that can keep mothers from getting the help they need, strategies for coping with the everyday stresses of mothering, and resources for support and more information. Although her talk focuses on mothers, much of the information is also relevant to fathers as they cope with their own or their partner's stress or depression.
