Hard at Work, Hard at Play

Well, it’s been another week since I’ve posted, but for good reason this time! I’ve been working hard (and having a wonderful time doing it because I am working on my passion which makes it FUN!) on getting ready to launch my Love and Mommy Hugs business – Supporting Women With or at risk of Postpartum Depression.

I just wanted to share what I created last week… I would love feedback (in whatever form it comes).

So, as I’ve been busily (and anxiously – in a good way) brainstorming my business, a new website, my offerings, how I can help, and why people would ever want to work with me (I mean, really, I’m not a Doctor, a Nurse, a Doula, a Midwife – you get the picture – I’m just a Stay-at-home Mom who happened to have experienced PPD pretty bad, so what do I know?!), my boys have continued to amaze me with their wonderful personalities every day. Brayden is getting to be so kind and saying “thank you” all the time, without prompting (pretty cool for not even 22 months yet!), and Zackery is just looking so grown up. I stare at his face and he looks older.

They both make me smile, and even now as I type this, I am smiling. I think of them, and I smile. I’ll admit, not all the time… ha ha – honesty folks… but overall they are such happy, polite, mellow, funny, smart, handsome (oh SO handsome) little boys. Big Snugglebug and Little Snugglebug – oh yes, my handsome little angel boys that I could snuggle up and hold all day long… I am blessed.

  1. Postpartum Depression Does Not Discriminate–oh, it is so true. What a wonderful, helpful article. My mother-in-law practically raised her youngest brother because her mother “just never got over” the loss of energy and her ongoing sadness after his birth. That was in the late 1920s, and if they’d only known, so much could have been done to help her.
    The loss of joy, the closeness she never fully experienced with her little boy–how I wish she’d had your article and doctors who knew how to help her.

    • Thank you for reading this. All I want to do is share about PPD, and stand next to those women who can’t yet speak up for themselves. I truly believe if we can spread the word, and educate women not to be ashamed, but to ask for help, we will all be better for it – as Mothers, and as our babies/children. It just starts with education, one person at a time. :)

Let's talk. I'd love to hear what you have to say!
