Help Us Fight Postpartum Depression & Anxiety With Your iPhone

Hey! Real quick, listen up.

Are you a mother? 

Do you have an iPhone? 

Have you ever experienced symptoms of postpartum depression, anxiety, and/or psychosis? No official diagnosis needed. 

WE NEED YOU NOW. We need your help kicking PPD/A in the ass. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. 


It will take you 15 minutes (and an iPhone) to be a part of the first large scale genetic study of postpartum mood disorders. HUGE DEAL. 

My friend Morgan wrote up this great overview at Buzzfeed. Give that a quick read while you’re downloading the PPD ACT app. 

You can also read the official announcement from Postpartum Progress here.

This was created with the help of Postpartum Progress, in partnership with some fantastic organizations AND Apple. That Apple. Can you even comprehend how amazing it is that we can help countless moms to come with a simple app in the palm of our hands?

I took the survey within the app yesterday. It was incredibly easy. I was chosen to send in my DNA for the study, which I also expect will be incredibly easy. I’ll keep you posted.

Okay, enough typing. I don’t want to take up anymore of your time. Please, please, please download the app, take the survey, and SPREAD THE WORD! The goal is to get 100,000 participants. Warrior Moms, ACTIVATE.

  1. Mari G Rider on

    Will there be an app for Andriod anytime soon? I was drowning in this and have common risk factors (induction, failed induction, extended separation, pain meds, so. many. drugs.) the list goes on. I would love to be part of the solution.

  2. The Uncoordinated Mommy on

    I downloaded the app and am now a part of this study! Have you ever experienced post partum depression or anxiety etc? You should too!

  3. I don’t have an Iphone. I don’t know if I truly had PPA or if it was the anxiety that came after Aidan died.

  4. I did it and I’m going to give them a spit sample, too. Mine was weird because I got more anxiety with each child, though I didn’t know PPA was a thing so I just kind of dealt with it. I am so glad I know about it this time, especially since I would be off the deep end if I hadn’t know that postpartum issuses aren’t just depression.
