Postpartum Depression

Postpartum Depression (PPD), also known as Postnatal Depression occurs in women after giving birth. I recently stumbled on an article about postpartum depression and I decided to share it with you guys.

I’ve never experienced it though but I remember when I had my son. I completely lost my appetite. My mum would practically force me to eat. I guess I was just overwhelmed with joy. I just couldn’t stop staring at my baby. Looking back now, I’m so thankful to God. Also, I’m grateful to God for the support I got from my wonderful family.

We need to show love to the new mothers around us. It doesn’t matter if it’s their first time or not. Maybe you might make her dinner, babysit her other children or even help with the house cleaning etc. Any act of kind gestures towards her would go a long way.


Motherhood is interesting but it’s important we acknowledge that being a mother is also not easy. No doubt, you can do it. You can be the best mum for your child. Some mothers might even feel that they are going through the first stage of postpartum depression but won’t say anything to anyone because of the fear of being judged. That’s why you need a great support system around you. I will like to say to a mother out there that might be going through this now, You Are Not Alone! Please talk about it and reach out for help. I pray for every mum experiencing this, May God heal you and make you whole again, Amen.
