Michele's PPD Story

I am afraid many men just don't know how or what to do, its just so scary. I couldn't imagine how I would feel if he changed the way I did after we had the baby. This is why we need to get the awareness out there in order for those who can't help themselves to get others to assist them in that support.

Since that time, I have started my own "baby planning" business, which I am waiting to take off so I can help new families get ready for their baby, I am attending classes for court reporting (so I can work from home editing reporters notes) and we hope to start trying to have another child as soon as we get straightened out a little bit more with my job and such.

Fortunately, I have met the founder of the Postpartum Resource Center of New York, who contacted me by learning about my business and I have become a volunteer for that organization, meeting many wonderful women of all origins to gain a better understanding of what I went through and how I can serve them as a shoulder to lean on for someone who needs me to be there for them during their struggle with PPD.
