The other day I saw a post or a cry for help, broke my heart after I saw it on a moms group on Facebook. I’m not going to say what she said verbatim but I will say she was at wits end after giving birth and felt no motivation to continue daily activities or even the motivation to live.
This was breaking my heart because I couldn’t be there for this
stranger mom. I quickly wrote a comment as fast as I could. I added words of motivation and with that added a postpartum hotline. I searched google and found something that was to call if a mom ever felt down. I think this is really vital to have as a new mom or let anyone else know.
I just thought I’d share this with everyone since there are so many lives lost because of postpartum depression. The hotline is 1-800-944-4773. They are available 24 hours a day. The website for this is Postpartum hotline . I hope this helps many out there, I wish I knew about this before, but I guess I discovered this now as a bridge to help and heal others.
