Letter to My Baby: I Suffered From Postnatal Depression When You Were Born

I like writing Isabelle letters to her future self. This is going to be one of them. I should really do them more often, but I feel that this is going to be one of the more important ones.

When’s the Right Time? I’ve talked to a lot of people about babies since becoming a parent. It’s almost inevitable that you do.
