I experienced postnatal depression with my first child, a daughter. It was from all the pressure to do this and do it that way and everyone’s negative input on how to look after my precious little bundle of joy. This was meant to be such a happy and fulfilling to win my life. Although a lot of it was stressful, tiring and very depressing. This experience and feelings of postnatal depression continued for well over a year. I know I did overcome this difficult time in my life and I truly believe it was my beautiful baby girl who got me throughout. Let’s not rap hard on ourselves as new mothers.
