Finding Hope After Postnatal Depression

As a 30-year-old woman who recently gave birth, I never expected to be dealing with postnatal depression. It’s been a tough road, but I found the strength to reach out for help. Through therapy and support groups, I’ve started to see a glimmer of hope. It’s not easy, and some days are still a struggle, but I know I’m on the right path. I want to encourage other women going through the same thing to not give up. There is support out there, and recovery is possible. It’s okay to ask for help, and it’s okay to not be okay. Let’s keep fighting and believing in better days ahead.
