Moms, trust your instincts. Do you feel like something isn’t quite right? And what does “right” look like? Everybody keeps telling you it gets easier but it feels like it’s still not easy. It feels like you’re trying to do it all, but you’re failing: the baby needs you, your partner needs you, and it feels like nobody gets it that you’re spent. If you feel that way, most likely things are not right. These feelings may be symptoms of postpartum depression.
- Postpartum depression is the MOST frequent medical complication of childbirth. So please know, you are not alone.
- 1 in 7 moms will experience Postpartum Depression.
- There is hope. Postpartum Depression is very treatable.
You do not have to suffer in silence, hoping this will pass. With help, you will not always feel like this and I know steps we can take to get you feeling better.
One of the greatest gifts you can give your child is to be a present, healthy, and centered parent. And for you being present, centered, and healthy probably feels as out of reach as flying to the moon.
Everybody is going to have an opinion about how to “just get over the baby blues” ranging from inaccurate, to the silly, to the really really unhelpful. You can be the present, calm, happy parent that enjoys this big new change with their baby.
So if you’ve said or thought these things a lot recently…
– “I’m too tired to try.”

– “I don’t care anymore.”

– “I don’t even know who I am any more.”
– “My baby/family is better off without me.”
– “I wish I wasn’t here.”
