BENEFITING: POSTPARTUM PROGRESS
EVENT DATE: Jun 18, 2016
I came across www.postpartumprogress.com in 2013, just a couple months after my daughter was born and just one article lifted so much weight off of shoulders. The one article, titled “The Symptoms of Postpartum Depression & Anxiety (in Plain Mama English),” is what I found first. I read it six times. Each word popped out at me. Each sentence. Each paragraph. Each symptom.
I was not alone.
I finally had something to offer my doctor, something more than just getting frustrated at not having words for what I was feeling!
My daughter is three now and I'm doing much better! Some days are still a struggle, I still have intrusive thoughts and my anxiety is still there, but I know how to handle it more, I know how to prepare myself and walk myself through an episode. I couldn't have done it without Postpartum Progress so this is my opportunity to give back.
If I help even one mom with my story, then that's great, but every mom deserves to know that she is not alone! We are in this together! We will survive!
