Diane Sanford has been passionate about helping women improve their emotional health since counseling her first mom twenty-five years ago. While on maternity leave with her daughter Jessica, she exhausted herself with cooking, cleaning, and hosting family and friends. When her daughter Rachel arrived four years later, she balanced her needs with those of her family. Even with a new baby, she felt much better, which convinced her that self-care is key to healthy postpartum adjustment.
An internationally recognized expert in pregnancy and postpartum emotional health, Diane has appeared on radio and TV shows including Good Morning America. A media expert for the American Psychological Association, Diane has been interviewed for stories in The New York Times, Washington Post, Parents, Woman’s Day, Redbook, and numerous health/parenting websites. She is Clinical Director of Mother to Mother, and has served on the Boards of Postpartum Support International, ICEA (International Childbirth Educators Association) Consultants, and Babycenter’s Medical Advisors.
Diane continues to practice self-care including daily meditation, working out, time with friends, writing, and travel. She cherishes being a mom, her most important role in life.
