FOUNDING DIRECTOR AND CLINICAL ADVISER
WENDY N. DAVIS, PhD is a counselor and consultant in private practice and a national perinatal mood disorders trainer. She was the Founding Director of Baby Blues Connection and now serves as Clinical Advisor and a volunteer trainer. She lives in Portland with her husband Tad and their 12 and 15 year old children.
Wendy recovered from postpartum depression and anxiety after the birth of their first child in 1994 and helped create BBC that same year. She is dedicated to Baby Blues Connection and its mission of providing informed and reliable support for pregnant and postpartum families and the professionals who serve them.
Being part of BBC and Postpartum Support International, supporting other families, and training new volunteers has given meaning to her postpartum experience. Now she finds herself grateful for that difficult postpartum time: for the depth, purpose, and community it brought to her life.
BOARD OF DIRECTORS:
Rebecca Binford, Board President & Baby Blues Connection Parent
I first came to Baby Blues Connection in 2010 to access services as a NICU parent after struggling with depression and anxiety throughout my pregnancy. I became a phone support volunteer and transitioned into a group facilitator role a year and a half later, then joined a subcommittee and ultimately, the board of directors.
I’m deeply committed to the mission of Baby Blues Connection to provide free support services – and to our staff & volunteers who make our work possible through their service to families adjusting to pregnancy, postpartum & parenthood while struggling with depression and anxiety.
