Having grown up with a mentally ill mother and suffering post natal depression with my first born, I have immersed myself in the theme of Maternal Mental Health and focused on the time as a first time mother and the struggles with adding a second child to the family, being conscious of not falling into a big, black hole again. While many mothers, I’m sure, will be able to relate to this range of emotions, the tipping point from baby blues to depression is a very fine line. 2 bridge of despair 3 hold me tight 4 reset your ions 5 the demon of my mind 6 you are what you eat 7 while you sleep
