Krista shares how sleep deprivation and difficulty breastfeeding contributed to her postpartum depression and anxiety, and when she knew to reach out for help.
“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.”
