When I gave birth to my son (1992) and daughter(1994) it was not a talked about thing.

I am one of the moms in the story. Thank you so much for sharing your story. My heart aches for you and what you had to go through. It is not mentioned in the article but I am now an active volunteer advocate for maternal mental health care, focused on changing things from a peer perspective. you are not alone. so many moms have reached out to me….some only now realizing years later that what they had was some form of a maternal mental health disorder.

Feel free to reach out if you ever need to. my email is cindy@2020mom.org There are so many who share your story and can relate. We are working on change slowly but surely. Hugs and thank you for your courage in finally sharing your story.❤
