The Medicated Mommy is Jen Schwartz and she is the founder and writer of the blog, The Medicated Mommy. Jen created this blog because some of us need an extra dose of happy…and happy mommy equals happy everyone. Here is a little bit about Jen...
After kicking postpartum depression’s ass, she learned the importance of accepting herself as the mom she is (one who pops an antidepressant every morning and isn’t having any more kids), not the mom she thought she was supposed to be (domestic goddess and Pinterest’s mom of the year). Jen loves being a mom to her little one but she loves herself too and never apologizes for who she is or putting herself first. She wants to help all moms give themselves permission do the same because again, happy mommy equals happy everyone. When Jen isn’t sorting Legos by color, figuring out what to microwave her kid for dinner, or bringing wine to playdates, you’ll find her writing, sharing the most intimate details of her postpartum depression journey, and organizing kid-free escapades with her girlfriends, all sans filter.
Jen is a regular contributor at The Huffington Post, The Mighty and Suburban Misfit Mom. Her writing has also been featured on Scary Mommy, Postpartum Progress, Kveller, BluntMoms, and Sammiches and Psych Meds. Connect with her on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Follow her on BLOGLOVIN' and Pinterest.
