Founder of MOTHERHOOD | UNDERSTOOD - I'm Not Just A Regular Mom, I'm A Medicated Mom; PPD Survivor; Taboo Sharer; Conversation Changer; Empathy Spreader
Jen Schwartz is the creator of The Medicated Mommy Blog and Founder of MOTHERHOOD | UNDERSTOOD, a social media platform that specifically talks to the 20% of moms who battle maternal mental health — scary stuff like postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety and a ton of other brain chemistry issues that hinder women from feeling like successful moms. Empathy-driven, funny, brave, honest, norm-breaking, with one sole focus: How mom is FEELING, not how she’s parenting. Jen is committed to taking the taboos around maternal mental health public and empowering moms everywhere to make self-care a priority and live motherhood more authentically. Jen is a published author, speaker, thought-leader, and contributor at the TODAY Parenting Team, Pop Sugar Moms, Motherlucker, The Mighty, Thrive Global, Suburban Misfit Mom, and Mogul. Her writing and commentary have been featured all over the mommy blogosphere at top websites such as Scary Mommy, CafeMom, HuffPost Parents, Hello Giggles and more. Always a New Yorker first, she lives in Charlotte, NC with her husband Jason, tiny human Mason, and dog Harry Potter.
