Lauren Hale

Lauren Hale is a two time survivor of Postpartum Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and mother of three. Her blog, Unexpected Blessing, began just days after discovering she discovered herself unexpectedly pregnant with her third child. After recovering from her second episode, Lauren dove headlong into the fray and has left no stone unturned. If there is a way to provide support, she does it - from volunteer Coordinator for the state of Georgia with PSI to running her own local peer support group for families with PPD as well as moderating online message boards. Lauren has been strongly drawn to supporting men through the Postpartum Mood Disorder Experience as she passionately believes whole family support and education is an essential key to recovery.
