  • I had HORRIBLE postpartum anxiety. And then I watched the documentary “When the Bough Breaks” which made me terrified that I was going to go crazy and kill my baby. They didn’t do a good job differentiating between postpartum anxiety and psychosis. Thankfully, I freaked out and told my therapist and she explained the difference between “I’m afraid of hurting my baby” and “I want to hurt my baby.”

  • Happened to me last for 7 years in and off. U r not alone, I got helped,fours years now depression free one day at a time. #support group please contact me if need any help or advise and don’t pick up alcohol it makes it worst believe me. Peace and love ❤️ 7542469971please text. You are not alone. Greatful Singal Mother of twins.

  • I never knew maternal mental health existed at hospitals… maybe that is part of the problem. Most doctors just want to put you on pills and expect you to fix it yourself

  • When you talked about the inner voices saying, “They’re probably better off without you,” I completely lost it. I’m a new mom with a seven week old and I hear that voice pretty often. It’s scary! Watching this video makes me feel like I’m not insane and that I’m not alone. Thank you.

  • Thanks for your vulnerability Camille and for sharing the reality for many moms, breaking the silence, guilt and shame. Your solution is powerful.

  • I’m a year late but I’m so glad I found this. I suffered from PPD for months after I had my second baby. It’s started about 3 months postpartum. I felt alone, isolated, and extremely irritable…like a rage. Eventually I started having suicidal thoughts It was awful. I stood in my closet with my husbands gun to my head. I was going to do it, but I heard my son coming up the stairs calling for me. Thank God! My husband tried everything to get me help, but I was so scared they would take my kids. These feelings progressed and I began cutting myself. I also began having terrible thoughts toward my daughter. Tears are rolling down my face as I write this. Eventually I saw my GP and he was incredible. He hugged me and told me I wasn’t alone. I was placed on a low dose medication and it worked! I began to see a psychiatrist and talk therapist monthly and it helped me immensely. It’s been almost 2 years since and thinking back on that time brings such guilt and shame but I know I made it. My kids have their mama and my husband has his wife. Ladies, please don’t suffer, there is help out there!❤️

  • Omg i feel like that too…what if he wont love me anymore. I feel like he expects a certain level of put togetherness for me…he thinks I just need to get a doctor and it’ll solve it

  • I have been a victim to PPD for the first fortnight after giving birth, bouts of anxiety were so unbearable but ever since I started drinking “relaxing mama tea” by secretsoftea.com the symptoms are fading out. Healing from the horrible phase of my life

  • Many thanks, been searching for “herbs for treating anxiety and depression” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of Hanincoln Nanlivia Framework (do a google search )? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my brother in law got excellent success with it.
