Blogging about life as a Mum, Postnatal Depression & all the stuff in between. Hoping to raise awareness of Maternal Mental Health.
About Me : I’m a thirty-something Mummy to one. I was diagnosed with Postnatal Depression when my little one was 18 months old.
I suffered with PND for far to long without seeking any form of help. By starting this Postnatal Depression Blog I hope those of you who find it seek help sooner than I did. There’s no need to suffer & there are many of us out there who’ve been on our own PND Journey and recovered.
My writings will often include articles about being a first-time-mum and the struggles of postpartum depression .The demands on mums to be perfect and have it all, unrealistic expectations and other mums judgements – as well as our own.
When the time came to return to my job it hit me hard especially as at the time I was suffering with then - undiagnosed postnatal depression. I work Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm. My little man is in nursery Monday to Friday, 8.30am-5.15pm.
I know this illness can make you feel alone, but you are not alone - you'll be surprised how many mums there are out there that have been through and felt exactly how you do. It takes time to recover but you will, give yourself a break you're doing a great job!
