A YouTube playlist curated by This is My Brave Inc., an organization that highlights personal stories of mental illness and addiction. Videos feature live performances of parent’s sharing their experiences with postpartum depression.
“I have been struggling with PPD for the last 3 years… I knew how to answer the questionnaire so it didn’t say that I needed help.
Finally, my friends noticed my behavior was different and started sharing their experiences with me.
It was after that that I decided to speak with my mid-wife. I didn’t want to take the meds because I am breastfeeding and was concerned about the meds getting into my supply. I didn’t know there was any other treatment besides anti-depressants.”
