I’m writing my story in the hopes of inspiring other mums to keep going. The journey of being a mum is not always an easy road then add in depression and it can seem like a real struggle. When i had my first baby, my son Jeremiah i was in real denial and thought that if i admitted that i was suffering that i was weak when in fact that’s not the case, you a strong to face it and eventually thats what i did. Its important to know as a mum and a person that depression does not define you, its just a part of you that needs that little extra help. Never feel like you are any less of a mother because you have depression, your an amazing mum and that’s what i have come to realise on my journey of becoming a mum.
