Let’s Talk About Postpartum Depression –

“I don’t like that she stole my sense of self and has yet to give it back”

This author aptly describes post partum depression in terms of your cell phone battery.  While we in the Grandmother Club don’t have to worry about this for ourselves, we should nevertheless be ever vigilant on behalf of our daughters, our DIL and other young mothers.  We know how hard a Woman has to work to be a momma.  It doesn’t get easier with subsequent children. 

Watching for and supporting the young mother so she can recharge her battery to continue the fight – this is a job for Super Gramma!  This is our job description, after all.

    Thank you so much for sharing! I left this comment in reply to you on my post, but wanted to share here at your lovely site, as well:

    “And it came to pass.” I like that. It’s affirming to know, but very hard to accept as you pass through the valley.

    I love the idea of “the Grandmother Club,” and I hope to be part of it one day! Bravo to you. 🙂 In answer to “How can we help you?” I think you already are by being so thoughtful and self-reflective. I think the most beautiful question I can be asked by people who are close in my life is just that: “How can I help?” or… “What do you need?” Meeting someone where they are at and really putting the time behind the offer to help is an amazing gift. It’s not a gift we are able to give at some points, because we’re so tapped out ourselves. But my children’s grandmothers have been amazing after they ask, “What do you need?”
