I created these to put into words the thoughts all moms with postpartum depression are thinking at some point; about a system that is so broken, at times, it’s almost funny. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE.
When you’re a vulnerable, tender, brand-new mommy, feeling the rawest you have ever been,
Marianne Williamson, American best-selling author, on PPD:
Moms who’ve been there are like,
The healthcare system responds like,
When you finally get that appointment, and the specialist either has never worked with postpartum women, you have to drive over an hour, or…
The room-clearing effect that mentioning postpartum depression research, funding, underestimated prevalence, or the need to do something has on an audience,
A wholly untrue piece of crock,

Yay for pediatricians, general physicians, and nurse practitioners for screening when they think something is not right!
When moms of the internet see a stigmatizing message,
And the best way to handle an anxiety attack, courtesy mom-blogger Constance Hall
