Do you know what this week is?

I know this blog up till now has been mainly observations and humour but this week’s focus is a bit more serious. This week is Postnatal Depression Awareness week. Did you know that 1 in 7 mothers experience PND? That’s 15% and its suggested that up to another 15% remain undiagnosed. Wow. That’s a lot of mums. And I am one of them.

So this week’s focus will be about my story, others stories, getting well and asking for help.

You can join us today at our playgroup’s New Parents Gala Day to talk about mythbusting PND, hear some recovery stories and find out ways to take care of yourself and your family. So join us for free popcorn, a free jumping castle (that’s where I will be!) free face painting and craft. We’ll have a BBQ running too!
