postpartum depression

How I manage my postpartum anxiety

“I had to find ways to keep the intense thoughts out of my head while caring for my son, along with keeping communication open with my husband.”

‘I placed my son for adoption, married the birth father, and now have 2 more children who are relatives of my birth son. CRAZY.’: Young couple begin ‘beautiful’ open adoption after unexpected pregnancy, ‘I chose to make beauty from the ashes’

“I was 20, homeless, and spiraling out of control. I never imagined myself as ‘that girl’ who got pregnant. I’d known the father for a month and had no clear future ahead of me. ‘I’m so sorry I could not be ready for you,’ I kept telling my son. 48 hours. That is how long he was ours. I wanted this stranger in my stomach to have a chance at life.”
