Today I'm going to share with you a story about the part of having a new baby that is least discussed or acknowledged. It is a story about one mom's battle with postpartum depression.
It is not a sad story.
She came from the dark, found light, and wants you to know you too can do the same.
"At 4 months postpartum, I started feeling alone and so sad. Nursing my son made it worse. I didn't want anyone around me, yet I didn't want to be alone. I waited two weeks to get help, but some moms feel as though they can't seek help at all. I want you to know that you don't have to wait. You don't have to continue suffering or to be alone in your struggle." - Amanda
To help build awareness and shed light on maternal mood disorders, I am participating in the annual Climb Out of the Darkness in Indianapolis this year, along with many other wonderful people who have endured maternal mood disorders or want to support those who have, like husbands and fathers.
