  1. For PTSD finding 'Somatic Experiencing' therapy has provided the changes, relief and hope I need. I watch and follow Irene Lyon on YouTube who helps educate and explain what is happening with me and why I have PTSD and I see a SE councillor. I like that this therapy really gets to the root causes of PTSD and is a wholistic approach.

  2. With my first one , i definitely has post paterm issues. Now i am expecting second one. Want to get ready for fighting PPD.

  3. Ptsd for me caused the postpartum depression. Thankyou so much for sharing your story ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’– much love and you are not alone. Fellow Aussie here to support! ๐Ÿ‘Š

  4. Hi Canna โ€“ Thank YOU very much for sharing. I am deeply grateful for all of your strength and encouragement. Word cannot express how much you have helped me. Knowing that you are not alone is key. From the bottom of my heart!

  5. I loved this video Canna – thank you so much. I'm at home with a 4 month old boy and to be honest not coping as well as I'd hoped. You are so inspiring have been slowly watching all your videos as I sit holding bub for hours during fussy times!! Thanks a million. Xx

  6. Thank you so much for sharing. I love your YouTube videos. You are guiding me during the time when I need someone so much. Your video are very high quality and admire all aspects of it. From your fashion to the depth of knowledge you are sharing with all. Cheers!

  7. Been watching your videos for a while now. For someone who seems so "together" and so beautiful it is so powerful for you to share this. Thank you. I know your story will help many. Best wishes to you.

  8. I can't even explain how much I appreciate you making this video!!! I see you as someone who is SUCH a productive and successful woman in all possible ways, I admire the way you look at your life, the way you work so hard and the way you own yourself, like you said in this video! I feel like you are one of those people that it's so hard to ever imagine that you would suffer from anxiety or something as powerful as PTSD… This really opened my eyes! After seeing this video I now see you as even MORE admirable, you are really such an amazing woman! Thank you so much for sharing your struggles with us <3

    I have struggled from a lot of anxiety and depression in the past, and one of the GREATEST tools i've ever discovered for my anxiety is a book called DARE by BARRY MCDONAGH. It's amazing, it' almost embarassing at this point how much i'm advocating it, but it seriously changed my whole life!!!

    Wish you all the best, whoever decides to read my comment :)!

  9. Thanks for being so brave to talk about this very important topic. Iโ€™ve gone the this and continue to do so and sometimes I really struggle with it as i donโ€™t really have much support. I just try to take it one day at a time. Iโ€™ve started to exercise and make time for myself now that both my children are at school and slowly feel better. Youโ€™re an amazing woman Canna and you give so much and I absolutely love your channel so thank you for that. I wish you all the love and peace in the world. xoxo

  10. Canna, Thank you so much for having the strength and courage to share your story. I have a history of anxiety and depression that has been flaring up in the past couple of weeks. Just hearing you speak on your experience is very encouraging. It is a pleasure to see your posts hear and on IG. Thanks again

  11. So inspiring that you shared this in such a raw and open way. Im sure you will touch so many women with your story!! Amazing xx

  12. Thank you for sharing Canna. Us mothers need to make it ok to self care. If we don't everyone suffers. Keep it up dear lady x

  13. Thanks so much for sharing this story. I too struggled with the first year of my baby's life. My experience was so different to those around me. Sharing stories like this is so important. Love your channel. Thank you, keep up the great work.

  14. You are SO BRAVE!! Thank you for sharing this tender part of yourself in the name of helping others. I pray you continue to receive peace and joy in your journey! Hugs from Waverly, Ohio USA. xoxo

  15. Canna, this is beautiful. Your way is so soft but strong. Thank you for sharing. I too have suffered. There is nothing worse in this world. I applaud your strength and courage to share your journey. It takes guts. And all your advice is spot on. Every one of those things, really does help. I hope you're doing ok.

  16. Thank you for sharing your experience with PPD and anxiety. I also experienced this with my second daughter a year ago. It was horrible. And it still brings me to tears when I reflect on it. Sharing our stories is incredibly healing. Mothers (and women in general) are used and abused in all societies around the world, but we're told to be perfect and never complain. Only other mothers understand the (sometimes) cruel lows motherhood brings, but if we share… it makes an immeasurably impact of support and unity. Anyway, thank you for sharing, from the bottom of my heart.

  17. Canna, you have such a beautiful soul – thank you for sharing your story. You are a wonderful mother and role model to so many. So happy that you were able to get out of that dark place and into your bright and shining normal self:)

  18. Dear Canna,
    Thank you for telling your story. I had Ptsd and postnatal depression after the birth of my daughter. I had complications after her traumatic birth requiring a-lot of surgery and months of recovery. I didnt sleep for 11weeks which led to me getting diagnosed with postnatal psychosis…i hallucinated my nightmares. My family tried to understand and help me but i needed more, i needed professional help. Without everyones help i wouldnโ€™t be here as the dark times where hell for me. My partner left after my daughters birth so it was my family that i needed so much from. The biggest thing that got me through was knowing others had suffered like this and had gotten better. Everyday i took it a day at a time ( i used to constantly say to myself โ€˜ it wont always feel like thisโ€™)….you canโ€™t rush recovery. My heart goes out to anyone suffering as know one truly sees whats happening inside your mind and body. But speaking out about this will give others hope they are not alone in this…help is there. So thank you for your video xxx

  20. I applaud your brave character! I have so many thoughts, I struggle on where to start first. Though my childbearing years are gone, I thoroughly enjoyed your video and so wished that I had some one to say those things when I had my children. As you can attest to, those thoughts and feelings hit you like a train you didn't see coming during the post-partum (natal) period. Being prepared is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your family. I have three children total and I am here to say it can be done! Have your plan in place and you will make it through. You have provided a wonderful video to help anyone who is struggling, your choice of words was excellent because listening to other tell their story can be scary when you're in a bad head space. You were descriptive in a way that was easy to understand and not too detailed that it could be overwhelming for a post-partum mom listening. Kudos for a job well done!!!

  21. You are brave and strong for sharing this – many suffer through alone. Love your honesty – I am positive this message will touch many! ๐Ÿค—

  22. Im 19 and you are a inspiration to me. I get so scared to come up to meet new people and have gotten panic attacks. I feel so lonely and its so hard to overcome something like that especially since I had truamatic events with friends in the past. I know this is a bit off topic, but I would love any tips or anything to feel less lonely. I wish I had a better community of girls./women around me.:( Hope life gets better. Thank you Canna for makng me feel less alone in my troubles!

  23. Post partum depression is such a horrible thing to go through. literally felt like was losing my mind. Thank god for my husband realizing my mental struggles. Went on medication for six months and therapy which brought me back. Exercise also helped! Thanks for sharing:).

  24. Dear Canna, thank you for being so strong to share your story, which is very personal and sensitive. You are fantastic. Keep up the great work and share your knowledge with the world. Wish you the best, I am proud of you and your success! xoxo

  25. Canna we only love you more. Your human. (that's really good to know hahaha)ย  This is a serious subject and you were so loving to share this. I myself suffered from Post Partum Depression and did not get the help I needed right away. I could have really used this video. ย This is going to help a lot of people. xoxoxo

  26. A friend of mine just had a co-workers wife commit suicide 1 year after the birth of her child from post partum depresson. PLEASE get help for people you see that are struggling.

  27. Hi Canna, have you tried the Bach flowers? They really can heal your anxiety or other bad emotions from their roots, an episode of anxiety, for example, is maybe masking an old fear, or anger, even from your childhood, so that is the real origin of the anxiety, when you heal the anxiety with the flowers, the hidden emotion comes to the surface, you can feel it and recognize it, then you can heal it, it could be one, or more hidden emotions, they will appear and you will be able to identify them and heal them. I wish you all the best and lots of love for you and your beautiful family.๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’•
