Jen Schwartz is the creator of the blog,
The Medicated Mommy, and the co-founder of
MOTHERHOOD | UNDERSTOOD, a social media platform that specifically talks to the 20% of moms who battle maternal mental health — scary stuff like postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety and a ton of other brain chemistry issues that hinder women from feeling like successful moms. Her sole focus is on how mom is FEELING, not on how she’s parenting. Jen is committed to taking the taboos around maternal mental health public and empowering moms everywhere to put their self-care first, let go of the “shoulds,” and live more authentically.
Empathy-driven, funny, brave, honest, norm-breaking, Jen is a published author, speaker, thought-leader, and contributor at the TODAY Parenting Team, Pop Sugar Moms, Motherlucker, The Mighty, Thrive Global, Suburban Misfit Mom, and Mogul. Her writing and commentary have been featured all over the mommy blogosphere at top websites such as Scary Mommy, CafeMom, HuffPost Parents, Hello Giggles and more. Always a New Yorker first, she lives in Charlotte, NC with her husband Jason, tiny human Mason, and dog Harry Potter. For more, connect with her on Instagram.
