Post-Partum Depression Series

I want to let you all know that I'll be kicking off a mini-series (3 days) on post-partum depression starting tomorrow. This is a very serious condition that can affect mothers across the board. It seemed to be particularly common among the NICU moms that I met.

This topic has been really hot and controversial in the media over the past few years. I'll be speaking candidly about my own experiences and welcome you to do the same. I ask that we all refrain from judging others in the comments.

I'm looking forward to opening a few doors of discussion and hopefully shedding some light on what sometimes feels like a very lonely condition.

I'll be opening tomorrow with a discussion about when you start to feel "off" and recognizing early signs. Check back with me!

Excellent topic of discussion. This should not be something we all keep to ourselves and not talk about. Thanks for starting the discussion!
