Postnatal Depression

Postnatal depression is a massive reason why I started this blog. So here are all the posts I’ve written related to having PND. Of course, I feel that postnatal depression is something that is my past, as I don’t suffer from it now, so there’s a strong chance that there won’t be many new posts related to this. But sometimes I do reflect over my time with PND, so I may still talk about this when things come up.

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. This letter to my baby is going to be about the fact I had postnatal depression when she was born. I want to tell her about it, and this is part of the way I’m going to do it. When I came out with my story, I had a lot of people saying it was bad as my baby would eventually…

Having a Breakdown With Postnatal Depression

I’m not going to lie, Sunday night I had what can only be described as a little bit of a breakdown with postnatal depression. So I’m going to do what I’ve always done since the very first post on this blog. And talk about my mental health and this little breakdown that I had. Having a Breakdown with Postnatal Depression I had a rough week in general last week. I wasn’t in a really bad place in terms of my depression, I’ve certainly been in worse, but for whatever reason, I just didn’t feel connected with Isabelle again. It all started on Tuesday…

Isablog #13 – A Little Bit of a Tougher Week

I will apologise for the inconsistencies between the blog and the vlog. This is the 13th blog, mixed with the 11th vlog. Does it matter? Not really. Here it is: For those not wishing to watch that, and I don’t really blame you, then here’s some good old fashioned writing for you to read. I will admit that the vlogs haven’t been the best lately. I’m pretty sure I don’t really cover anything in them, and I basically talk bollocks in a boring, pointless manner that no one wants to watch. Even Rachel doesn’t care after a minute or so and…

Appearing on This Morning to Talk About Postnatal Depression

Well, here’s something I never thought I’d say. Today we sat on the This Morning sofa and had a chat with Amanda Holden and Ben Shepherd about postnatal depression. Appearing on This Morning to Talk About Postnatal Depression It all started last week. Someone from the Wales Online asked me whether it would be ok to run my postnatal depression story on the website accompanied by a doctors take on the illness to help back it up a bit. I was a little bit apprehensive about it, but eventually I thought to myself that since it’s already in the public…
