Hi! My name is Jen. After the birth of my second child in November 2017, I was diagnosed with a condition called peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM). PPCM is a form of heart failure that can occur during or soon after pregnancy. This is a somewhat rare condition but I hope with this blog and my story, I will be able to help spread awareness and not let another mommy have to go through what I did or worse.
