Did you know?

Postpartum depression can start any time in the first 12 months after having a baby, most often between three and four months after the baby is born. I experienced this after the birth of my third child. I know the signs and I can help.

Having my first granddaughter, Ava, brought back all the feelings from when I first had my own babies.
