I made it through six weeks postpartum feeling fine
“I made it through six weeks postpartum feeling fine, and I thought I had avoided a PMAD. I feared it, as I struggled with anxiety and depression on and off for most of my life, and I was relieved that I didn’t have any symptoms. Things took a turn after that. The isolation of new motherhood during a pandemic left me with a depression that I wasn’t prepared for. I am grateful that I already had a network of mental health professionals who identified what I was going through, and I am especially grateful that they recommended the Motherhood Center. The online support group was an immense help in making me feel less alone during an isolating time.”
