You’re feeling alone, but you just don’t have the interest or motivation to talk to any of your friends.
You stay in your pajamas all day because it’s easier than trying to find something that fits.
You’re feeling like you just want to drive far away because all you want right now is a break.
Why does it look so easy for other moms?
Approximately 15% of women experience significant depression following childbirth. The percentages are even higher for women who are also dealing with financial stains. Ten percent of women experience depression in pregnancy. In fact, depression during pregnancy and postpartum is the most common complication of childbirth.
