Postpartum Depression is not a secret, when we talk about it, we can stop the whispers behind closed doors! It’s terrible and I had it, along with many other mothers and not just 1st-time mothers. It can also happen to adoptive mothers. Did you know that 1 in 8 mothers will experience PPD? Next time you’re with your a group of your lady friends, just take a look around. One of you has probably been through this, and has been too scared to talk about it!
Let’s talk about it! I’ll go first!
I stared at her; she was perfect! 10 tiny toes, 10 tiny fingers, she slept well, she was pretty content most of the time! I was scared and angry! Nothing made sense. I was sadness, anger, fear, and frustration. I felt terrible! In reality, I was blessed. Why did I hate myself?
