About me

I am a survivor of Postnatal Depression!

My name is Claire Engelbrecht. I am married to an amazing man by the name of Kobus and have three reasonably well adjusted children, Samuel, Abigail and Sarah. I live in Cape Town, South Africa. The only things that keep me sane are Jesus, chocolate and coffee.

I am an ordained minister, and have been in some form or other of ministry for more than 20 years. After Postnatal Depression knocked me down, I took a break from active ministry. However, God is now doing a new thing in my life!

He is busy making something beautiful out of my brokenness and has called me to minister to other women who are also struggling with Postnatal Depression.

I am excited to be doing this through the medium of blogging, as well as speaking directly to women and those who support them.

I invite you to join me on my Journey Through Blue and pray that God will bring healing and encouragement into your life.

From my heart,


I would LOVE to hear from you! Please send me an email.
