It’s OK. #PNDAW16

It’s OK, if your house is a mess.

It’s OK, if it’s 2pm and you are still in your pyjamas.

It’s OK. You are not alone.


It’s OK, if you can’t breastfeed and wish you could.

It’s OK, if you can breastfeed and wish you didn’t have to.

It’s OK. You are not alone.


It’s OK, if you don’t feel happy.

It’s OK, if you don’t feel like you.

It’s OK, if you feel nothing at all.

It’s OK. You are not alone.


It’s OK, if you are overwhelmed.

It’s OK, if you can’t bring yourself to hold your baby.

It’s OK, if you are scared out of your wits.

It’s OK, if all this is just too much.

You are not alone.

    Absolutely agree with all of this. I had PND with all five of my children and wish that it was something more people felt comfortable to talk about. #brilliantblogpost

    I tried to prepare myself for post natal depression, and it was a factor against having a biological child after suffering depression in my twenties.
    So glad we decided to have a child and grateful for the placenta encapsulation advice. It could have been the placebo effect in place, but all I know is that I never tired in the first three months and was one of the lucky ones. I would do it again, as I was so so damn lucky the first time around.

    I just wanted to be strong and healthy.

    It seemed to be enough.
