Hello!

I know a lot of mums, especially with little ones, are struggling. I know because I am one of those mums. I have lots of friends who are those mums. I have always struggled with depression but this year I had a breakdown. I had a crazy 2 year old, a young baby who refused to go to anyone else, and a workaholic husband who was trying his best but not knowing what to do. We lived in a 6th floor apartment on a 6 lane busy road in Sydney. My girl is a climber (well, both are now) and she could unlock doors. I was in a constant state of panic and I just couldn’t cope anymore. Thankfully I saw my GP and I ended up being referred to a Mother Baby Unit. It was life saving. If you are struggling, please seek help. There are people who can help you. I know it’s hard but once you have done it you will wonder why you didn’t do it earlier.
