Michelle’s Story

Michelle is the owner of a non-profit in Asheville, NC. She’s been married to her partner for two years, and just delivered her first baby at Mission Hospital. She’s been home for six weeks, but things aren’t going as planned. A few weeks ago she started having scary thoughts pop into her head, in some of them she is hurting her baby. She’s horrified . . .

I’m Jenny Schermerhorn, a licensed professional counselor focusing on work with postpartum mental health.

I created MotherWise Texts as a free service for moms in my community of Asheville, NC and it has spread like wildfire.

I dealt with postpartum depression, postpartum OCD and postpartum anxiety over 5 years and two children. Now, as a maternal mental health therapist and advocate I love providing help, hope and support so women don’t get stuck feeling awful and missing their first weeks and months with their babies.

Jenny aims to give actionable information and resources to OB/GYN staff, general practitioners, delivery teams, NICU staff, and other locations that interact with postpartum families.
