9 Things Moms Affected by PPD Want You to Know

Sincerest thanks to each mama who shared their PPD experience + advice for this post, and so much love to all of you who have gone through or are going through postpartum depression. Let's keep the conversation going in the comments if you have any wisdom to add or stories to share. The more we talk about it, the more we normalize it.🤍  
  Don’t be afraid of your needs. Even if people don’t understand, don’t stop communicating what you feel that you need. If communication feels too tough, write out your thoughts until you next feel brave/rested enough to share. @tranicaq   Dealing with PPD does NOT make you any less of a mom nor does it mean you don’t desire to be a mom. If you’re reading this and feeling something similar, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I promise someone around you can relate. You are loved. If you don’t feel that right now, at least believe it and the rest will come. @carissapugmire
Medication helped turn around a terrifying postpartum experience to one that I LOVED. Many people think you can’t breastfeed with psych meds and that is NOT true. I went from feeling ashamed and inadequate to eventually feeling like a badass mother who can handle anything.
You won’t feel this way forever!!
Don’t be afraid to ask for help—but if you can’t, I get it. I couldn’t even pick up the phone to call my doctor, so I had someone else do it.
