    Thank you for this post! I have suffered through postpartum depression with all four of my children and had only started being treated for it after I had my third child. It is so important to keep a watch out for depression in postpartum moms, whether they are first time moms or “seasoned” moms. It’s equally important to keep an eye out during pregnancy, as I have found out. Women need not be ashamed that they are suffering…but it’s so hard when there is such a stigma out there, especially in the media.
    Keep up the good work!
