Part One—Finding My Voice Again

*I will call what I experienced “postpartum anxiety” for the purposes of having a language to communicate, but labels can alienate and create distance. That’s why I’m taking some time to dig into what it was like for me. And I want to make very clear that what you or others may experience can look very different or very similar to this and you still need and deserve help. It could seem more severe, it could seem less, it could be a day a month, or two years after your baby was born, it doesn’t matter, ask for help, every single parent needs help.

  2. Crying as I read this, feeling a lot of love and empathy for you and this intensity. OMG. I’m so glad to be knowing more about you and all of this. Virtual hug going out to you, soon to be followed by a real life one! xoxo
