Postpartum Depression

Despite roughly 1 in 5 mothers experiencing postpartum depression, it is often difficult to admit for many. Mothers having their 3rd or 4th child can still experience it, even if they didn't after their previous children. There are many feelings mothers often feel they "should" be experiencing and depression, anger, worthlessness are not on their list. So many factors outside of the mother's control contribute to these feels and it's difficult to ask for help. Don't wait to be asked if you could help a mother. Ask if you could hold their child so they can have 15 minutes to themselves or ask if you could wash the dishes or clean the house for them.
