Postpartum Depression is one of the most common conditions in women after birth. In fact, there are over 3 million cases of women per year who are suffering, often silently. Postpartum depression, commonly referred to as PPD, can alter your mental and physical state and can range in how it affects one person to another.
Today we learn from mental health advocate, entrepreneur and mama, Sasha Nicole and her severe experience with postpartum depression. Learn the difference between baby blues, postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis.
**WARNING: Sasha doesn't hold back on her experience… So, if you're not in a safe place right now for this conversation, maybe save this one for later and go check out last week's episode.
Learn how Sasha dug herself out of a postpartum hole that lasted over one year in this episode of the Mamas in Training Podcast.
YOUR PAST & POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION
Rarely do we consider how our childhood or past experience with depression and anxiety might resurface and influence our experience in motherhood. It is an area that should be more closely considered. When we are so vulnerable postpartum, it is essential to have the support we need. Support can come in many different forms and we need all different forms in order to truly be taken care of as a new mother.
When you have the opportunity to be in a group, whether it’s in person, online or both, you get a chance to see how other women are navigating the same path and can either realize that you may need more help than you thought or that you’re doing just fine. Either way, it is essential to prepare that support before we give birth. In addition, when any kind of negative thought comes into our mind, we must share that with someone before it takes over our day to day.
