I became a mom on October 20, 2019.

When my son William was born, I’d read all of the books and had Google spreadsheets outlining the best baby products. None of it prepared me for postpartum depression or navigating my new life as a mom.

My name is Kirby Brooks Todd and I live in San Francisco. This is a space for me to write about motherhood.



I am the Managing Director at Mekanism, San Francisco. Mekanism is a fiercely independent ad agency that blends creativity and performance to build great brands.


I am proud to support and be a former board member of Episcopal Community Services, which has provided essential services to homeless San Franciscans since 1983.
