13 | Investing in postpartum – With Kathryn Millhouse


In this episode we hear from Kathryn Millhouse @_motherup about her transition from large-scale corporate finance and health economics into motherhood, which left her feeling blind-sighted as she faced her first significant mental health challenge with Postpartum Depression and Anxiety. This experience birthed Kathryn’s passion and advocacy for preemptive investment in postpartum (through quality evidence-based resources and practical support), which she now provides through her business @_motherup.

Kathryn’s top tips for doing ‘Postpartum like a boss’ are:

  • Surround yourself with the right people
  • Throw your ego out the window/ minimise expectations
  • Pre-emptively seek resources and put supports in place for your postpartum
