Thank You!!!

Wow!!! I am overwhelmed with the response to my first post and I wanted to thank you all.

It breaks my heart to think that in just 3 days I have received¬†so many emails and comments from other women who are, or know someone experiencing PND. I promise, I will eventually get back to each and every one of you but I have to admit, I didn’t think it would take off like it has, sooooo I may take a while but I will get back to you.

Olivia is 3 1/2 now, at times I question if PND would affect our relationship but I can assure you it hasn’t at all. She is a beautiful loving little soul who makes me laugh everyday and we are blessed to have such a little character. We are very close and I think she is finally starting to look like me ha ha. I have no idea what she will chose to do with her life but whatever it is, look out because she will be running the show.

Now you have heard one of the ” bad and UNspoken” topics, my next post will be a “good” one. Next week, I will be chatting about my pregnancy, birth and feeding a with my 7 month old baby Jack.

Once again thank you.

We are all a bit crazy sometimes but I always say “if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry”.

  1. When brave women like yourself reach out and share their stories… they (you) help heal others that don’t have the strength to reach out and ask for help. xo

    • It is so relieving that I am not the only one having ‘dizzy days’. You are a brave woman.

  2. I can’t wait to hear how your pregnancy and birth went with your son and if your knowledge of PND and as a mother helped in any ways. I had a horrible pregnancy and birth and often worry about how I will cope with morning sickness whilst looking after a toddler. I can’t complain though, I have the most amazing little 1 year old who was quite happy last night after watching the lions win along with my husband.

  3. What an inspirational and courageous young woman you are. So selfless to share your story to help others. I’m sure privacy is something you would cherish with Jonathon in the public position he is so it makes your generosity even more special.

  4. I was very moved to read your open and honest account of your experience with PND. Fortunately I did not suffer PND but did suffer depression for many years and like you resisted getting help just trying to soldier on and pretend to the world that I was okay. I hope your article encourages others with symptoms to seek help sooner rather than later. Thank you for allowing something so personal to become so public.
