  1. I'll be 4 mos post in June and I am dealing with this. I live with my parents at 23 so Its just really depressing.

  2. Thank you for being open. I had my daughter 15 months ago and I still feeling like I'm suffering. I know for sure I suffered from it in the beginning and then my life became super stressful due to circumstances. I'm just starting to pull myself out of it. Unfortunately it took me being the cause of my relationship to end to realize that I was still suffering

  3. During my pregnancy (currently 38 weeks) I've been having serious depression. I've had this depression since I was 13 years old and recently had a psychiatric evaluation and was diagnosed with PTSD AND Mood disorder (BIPOLAR). A lot of the depression I've been feeling throught my pregnancy is coming from people pushing negative expectations on me about being a mother. "Its going to be hard." "You're going to be stressed out." "You're going to want time to yourself" "Once that baby gets here you're gonna want someone else to take your child for an hour."

    It's so annoying and it depresses me because I'm not everyone else. I'm so happy to be pregnant, I'm so happy to be a mother, I'm so happy to spend quality time with my newborn. I also feel depressed when I'm not letting go of old habits and behaviors to be a better example and role model for my daughter. She's not even here yet and she's giving me so much reason to keep living and to be the best version of myself.

    I don't see being a mother as this dreadful task that everyone portray it to be. And that's where my depression stems from, peoples negative input on motherhood.

    I've felt more grief and pain after having an abortion wide awake. I grieved for an entire year. So of course I'm positive and optimistic now that I'm 38 weeks pregnant with an healthy baby girl. I wouldn't change it for the world.

  4. Thank you so much for your story and advice! I am a year postpartum with baby #2 and still feeling down many days. I can relate completely about what you went through. More moms need to hear this! When moms feel less alone, I hope they are more likely to see a doctor about it!!

  5. I'm pregnant with first child I be thinking that I'm going to failed my child sometimes. I've been crying about that I've been doing some thinking to myself. I do have anger issues!

  6. You have the perfect round head. Black is soooo beautiful. You don’t even have a blemish. Your skin is so young and tight

  7. Thank You!! your so Strong and Beautiful I'm 28 weeks preagnant this is my first child this was really encouraging

  8. omg i needed to see this soooo bad, i am 3 months into my ppd, I had my daughter 3 months ago and my son 17 years ago. I believe due to the spacing in children i got ppd. I was so used to doing things for myself and barely for my son because he could do thins majority for himself but, I often feel like i set myself back with my daughter and it is all too much,sometimes i feel ok but i feel like it creeps up on me when i least expect it,i appreciate you sharing your story in a weird way i feel better knowing other women feels this way!

  9. I lost my family due to PPD. She realizes she may have it but she’s totally changed for the worse. She’s a different person now who hates me for the smallest thing (literally talks down to me for helping) and literally forgets and/or doesn’t see me providing for us. I always wanted a family and her parents are making it worse with unrealistic expectations. (Buying a house within 3 months and less than 7 months into a relationship) That didn’t work out and she hates me for it. Not sure what to do but I’m a faithful man and good provider who lost his family over nothing. I’m lost.

  10. I wanted to hug you through the screen. I found out recently that I have untreated post partum.. I’ve been having thoughts and that’s what sent me through the roof, I held it in for 3 days and that was it I couldn’t do it anymore and now I’m on medication and going to therapy next week..

  11. I need help… I'm dealing with this right now !!! I never thought about hurting my 3 three month old Baby Girl. I'm just tired…. #inneedofabreak #newmom #thestruggleisreal PLEASE Feel Free To Comment (need someone to talk to)

  12. Im seeking help! Im calling my doctor in the morning bc I have postpartum depression and my baby is almost 6 months old. I have thoughts of harming her and I have yelled at her. I feel bad and I think it might be getting worse.

  13. Waow you are incredibly brave! I felt exactly the same way. I am so grateful you shared this video! Thank you so much.

  14. Your story is so similar to what happen to me. The only difference is that it toke me years to realize that I had postpartum depression. Thank you for sharing this video. I always thought I was a horrible person and most of all a horrible mother. The social stigma that a mother should be perfect is so overwhelming when you have that condition, and it's hard to reach out for help. I'm glad to come across this video I cried with you because it felt like it was me telling the story. :,)

  15. Thank you for sharing! I thought I was alone cause I'ma first time Mommy even though now my daughter is 2 years ago. I believe I still have it, and it hurts cause I have no one I can trust to talk too. It's definitely a battle and I'm at a point I don't know what to do.. besides pray. This is taking a total of my life 😒😒

  16. You're brave, strong, and beautiful! Women are so strong, mothers are the light of our life and you are a blessing to youe children so always remeber that😊

  17. You’re so brave and courageous! This is real!! Thank you for being open and honest. You’re a mom but you’re still HUMAN. I’m not a mom but you all seem so hard on yourselves.

  18. You are amazing for sharing this story. We all need to connect and be real, easing such guilt throughout the journey of motherhood.

  34. I'm pregnant now with our second child, it was very unplanned, and we already have a 1 year old… I have some dark times already and I'm only 5 weeks… My husband doesn't even want another child right now and wanted me to get an abortion, but I'm trying to be strong and stick with what's right. I had this with my first child slightly, but I'm scared to have it again with this one…
