On this episode of the Top Knot Squad, we will be discussing parenting as a survivor of mental health. It is no secret that perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMAD) can wreak havoc on every aspect of our lives. But what about its effects on life after early parenthood? On today’s episode, we will be discussing parenting as a survivor of mental health, the impact that PMADs can have on our relationships, and the prolonged repair we have to engage in with our children and partners to maintain healthy attachment. We’re excited to welcome our guest, Jill Birt.

About Jill:

Jill is a Registered Nurse, Certified Yoga Teacher with advanced training in Yoga Psychology and an essential oil educator for doTERRA essential oils. She began her career as an RN here in Austin in 2001 caring for expectant mamas in labor and delivery. She found herself drawn to yoga and meditation for support as her family grew and life demands thickened, but it wasn't until she was trying to find her way out of the debilitating darkness of severe anxiety and depression that trailed postpartum psychosis, that she really discovered the healing power of yoga. Through study and practice, she has learned yoga is far more than a physical experience. Her study of yoga has deepened her understanding of the human mind, body and spirit and the immense resource of intelligence within. The path of yoga has also led her to discover the vast support nature offers in holistic wellbeing. She believes the most effective form of healthcare is integrative holistic healthcare. She holds a great respect for the power nature offers in healing, values the advancements of modern science, and relies upon the wisdom and spiritual teachings of yoga
