Did you suffer any postpartum depression or baby blues?



what's yours?
It was a difficult time…

I did not qualify for clinical postpartum depression but as with many women, my first birth was not what I had expected. It was a very difficult time and what happened didn’t exactly match up with what I wanted to happen. I had a lot of trouble breastfeeding at first. I got help but it was discouraging. I felt ill-equipped to take care of this 8 pound baby that came out of me. I sought out help and went to my small close circle of friends who parent the way I did. It’s something women need to talk about more, how hard it is. I was not a person who held my newborn and knew what to do and fell instantly in love. It’s important to talk to someone immediately.
