  1. I feel the exact same way. I want to get in my car and just leave. I’m always tired and I just don’t know how to feel with being a new mom and not getting sleep. It’s hard.

  2. My "baby" will be 15 years old in March. I also went through terrible post partum depression. I didnt know anything about it, so I assumed everything I felt after I gave birth was normal. It took an entire year for me to seek help, and that's when they diagnosed me with postpartum psychosis. I was hospitalized for 2 weeks, saw doctors and got on medication. I felt like such a failure. It took 3 years for me to completely come out of it. I was so incredibly lucky to have a supportive husband and family near by to help me through it all. Unfortunately I never did have any more children for fear of suffering from it again. I regret that. Thank you for making this video. I still, after 15 years have guilt about not having that "normal" beautiful connection with my baby. I feel like I still have an open wound that I keep covering up with bandaids, but your words are so healing and its so good to know even now that I am not alone. Thank you again for sharing your story. We need to discuss it more!

  3. I went through post partum with my 2nd son. I attempted suicide twice. I knew that I needed help but wouldn't get any counseling or advise from anyone. I think that him being an unexpected emergency C-section sparked the post pardum. My depression started immediately. Mine lasted almost 2yrs. Thank God I made it through for myself and my boys. Oh and I am also from Ohio! O H I O 😊

  4. I honestly love this video because nobody ever just talks about the truth of a baby. The always just talk about how beautiful the experience is. But this is so real I love it. This is hope that you can fight through anything. Much love to you ❤️ you’re so strong

  5. I totally felt the same! I felt extremely isolated and like I couldn’t talk to anyone. This video made me cry.

  6. I’m crying while writing this right now. I’m struggling so much right now. I have a history of depression but also drug abuse, I’m clean now and have been since before I got pregnant with my daughter and I always said my depression was drug induced. My pregnancy and delivery with my daughter was amazing, I was on cloud 9, I felt so happy. Then I got pregnant with my son and something changed during that pregnancy and has only gotten worse since then. I LOVE my children so much but I often think how different things would be if I never had my son. I’m always angry and frustrated. I will never hurt my children, I will hurt myself before I would ever harm them, but I yell so much, and in the back of my head I’m telling myself to calm down and it isn’t that serious. My boyfriend (their dad) is so great and so patient with them and with me. I do have some great days but the bad are way more often. Today was a very bad day. I pray so much, asking for help. I’m sorry that I’m rambling but I feel like you would understand. Thank you for telling your story.

  7. Poor lady…I really felt for her. I was going through something, but really not word to word at what she is describing. However, for a long time, I would drift between big upset to being a mpty and not inspired by anything. It took some tool on my marriage but we are recovering. I wonder which impact this had on her marriage and hopefully they are a happy family by now

  8. I’m only 3 minutes in… I feel like this is me making this video. As I bawl my eyes out listening to my story be told by a stranger.

  9. had it with my 4th baby overwhelming. mine is slight. i lock doors and wont my other kids and anybody go in the room. i wanted to rest and rest i was so tired. until now she os 1 yr i have chronic hives for 6 months now

  10. I love this! This is exactly how it was for me. I didn't think I had ppd because I didn't feel anything but anger and guilt towards my husband. I was getting out of bed, so how was I depressed? It took me a year to get help, and I am so glad I did. I now spend everyday helping other women find positivity in life and parenting. Thank you for sharing your story!:)

  11. Thank you so much for your bravery. This topic is so important. I just shared my story yesterday on my baby’s first birthday. It takes a lot of courage and vulnerability to be this open. You are helping other women. ❤️ And that’s how we conquer this terrible subject, together.

  12. How wonderful that you share your story. I too went through postpartum psychosis.. going through ups and downs, and after prayer and going to a naturapath all the mental symptoms are gone. However at the time I felt it would never end.. I could not understand for a while why I was feeling odd. There is hope! It takes first realizing there is a hormonal imbalance after birth, and fixing that is the key.

  13. Beautiful video. You're so strong. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing. Your video has really informed me.
