Start Here

Hey there!

I am Kaitlyn. Here is a picture that represents my whole world.

My husband and I have been married for 2.5 years and our beautiful baby boy will turn 1 in January. We recently moved to Utah County from our “home” in Cache Valley to start our newest adventure. Upon moving, I “retired” from my nursing job and became a full-time mama.

I tell most people we moved because my husband got an AMAZING job, which he did. But that isn’t the full truth.

The truth is, I am a mama suffering from Postpartum Depression & Anxiety.

With the return of this disease, after I thought I had it handled, came dark days and even darker thoughts. I felt completely alone and was drowning fast. After spending 5 days in the hospital, my husband and I decided to move south to be closer to my family (to read more about my personal battle with this disease, click this page). Upon moving, I knew that I wanted to become better and have new beginnings.

Thus, My Postpartum Life was born.

This is a safe space where I want to be real about becoming a mama and that it isn’t always picture perfect like our Instagram account shows. My Postpartum Life is about all things mama, along with some of my favorite everything’s.

This is my new beginning as a blogger, and eventually a photographer. Thanks for being a part of it.

Anxious & excited| Kaitlyn
