I spent 6 years working to have a child. After an early loss, the challenges of multiple fertility treatments, and a stressful pregnancy we welcomed our twin daughters (through IVF) on November 5, 2017. Born at 31 weeks gestation, they spent 6 weeks in the NICU. I am so grateful to write that they are now happy, and healthy 3 year olds.
The combination of the mental and physical stressors, along with the fluctuation of hormones manifested itself in pretty severe PPD. I was fortunate, as I have faced mental health issues in the past, and have a strong support system in my family. I knew when I had reached the point where I needed to ask for help.
I was able to find an excellent mental health professional who prescribed a specific treatment plan and helped me feel better. Not all women are so fortunate. In the hopes of making even a small contribution to help other women facing maternal mental health issues too, my plan is to donate a portion from each monthly bow subscription to Postpartum Support International.
