Rachael Watters holds a Doctorate of Physical Therapy. She is
a full time wife and a mom to Micah (7), Adeline (5), Emerson
(3) and Chloe (17 months). She understands the demands
and isolation that being a mother of young children can bring.
Over the last year she has been involved in a storytelling
endeavor entitled MOMedy. This project consisted of writing
and performing a one woman tragic comedy based on her
postpartum experiences. Rachael considers herself to be a
maternal mental health advocate and hopes that sharing her
story and bringing awareness to the realities of perinatal mood
and anxiety disorders can break down the stigma surrounding
maternal mental health and encourage others to seek support
and treatment.
