Post-natal depression ⁣

Yesterday @maryumlikes posted her battle against postnatal depression, after reading my comment on her post @mytoddlerandbub asked if I could do a post on this particular topic as well. Today @themeinm0mmy also shed light on this topic, check her stories if you’d like to see what she shared. ⁣

I discussed my battle against PPD in a detailed blogpost, last year way back in June. I’ll leave the link in bio, in case anyone wants to go through it. This was one of the first topics I covered when I started this blog. Postnatal depression is one of most common yet misunderstood mental illness especially in desi society. I was declared ‘nashukri’ by some fellow mums because I wasn’t happy after giving birth to a healthy baby boy. ⁣

I went through a severe phase of PPD. I was on the verge of harming myself. I witnessed how helpless Umer felt, I saw him breaking down. It took me a few therapy sessions, frequent visits from mental health team and several calls to Lifeline Australia for suicide prevention to deal with PPD. Stopping breastfeeding and pumping altogether was another thing that helped me feel better.⁣

If you think you have signs of depression or anxiety, or just need to vent to someone, please open up about your feelings. Make sure you speak up. Don’t suffocate yourself. I assure you talking it out will only make things better. ⁣

For help I contacted (Australia) ⁣
- Lifeline Australia ⁣
- PANDA ⁣
- Beyond Blue⁣
- Midwives⁣
- My family GP ⁣

I want to share a short personal story. Few weeks ago, I was desperate to sort out my childcare so I could focus on a new work opportunity. I was really freaking out about it and discussed it with a mama-friend at the school gate. Without hesitation she offered to help. She would help with school run and also keep my son with her until I returned sometimes as late as 7pm. Instantly she took a load off me, instant relief! When she told me a few hours ago that she could no longer help because of other commitments, not going to lie I was a little sad. But I’m forever grateful for your kindness, @mjpanayi. Thank you! Need more friends like you. Makes me value the support of a village even more! 🤗💛

MUMS NEED MUMS because now more than ever, there’s so much more on our plates with so much less help. Don’t you agree? Sending love to you all! 💛💛

Our past shapes how we view the world and decisons we make everyday. Because what has happened to us guides our expectations of what the future holds.

That means that if we have had negative experiences and trauma, we expect things not to go as well IF we haven't worked through our baggage.
So in order to see things differently and not pass on our negative reactions to our kids we need to work through our baggage. This will help us to stay more in the moment and less disposed to seeing the negative in situations.
So take care of yourself. Parenting can trigger a lot from our pasts that we weren't expecting making it an even more difficult time. And seek help if you need to. Taking care of you is so important ❤. Hi my name is Brooke Shelton and I'm an accredited AMHSW and a perinatal, child & family therapist. I've been working with parents and families for over a decade and I have kids of my own.

If you would like more help with this idea then please request to join my reflective parenting facebook group (pregnancy, birth and beyond) because I believe all of us parents need more help and support at times. Link on main insta page if you want to join 😊.

If you would like more specific parenting or counseling support, then please contact me for a one on one online consultation.

Take my hand, my darling
And fall into my arms
I’ll be there to hold you, my darling
To hug and squeeze you tight
You don’t have to be brave for me, my darling
Please just be yourself
You don’t have to worry, my darling
I am right here beside you
I will watch over you, my darling
Through the darkness and the light
You are not alone, my darling
You are imperfectly perfect
Just the way we all are, my darling
So please don’t give up the fight
There is always hope, my darling
There is always, always hope
So take my hand, my darling
And fall into my arms
Let those beautiful tears flow, my darling
And begin the healing from within

I’m so thankful to those of you who took the time to ♥️, comment and message me. Thank you for telling me that I’m brave for talking about it.

Screen time... Photo of my cute child next to some aesthetically appealing graffiti for attention, because if this was a photo of him watching TV, most of you would scroll past. It wouldn’t be glamorous or instagrammy enough. Plus, if you’re honest, a few of you would potentially judge me for openly flaunting that my toddler actually gets some screen time.

I posted on my stories this morning, a response to an article I read about a restaurant in Sydney that has banned screens, as well as colouring books and other activities. The restaurant owner tells parents to forgo these items and ‘engage with their children’ or ‘stay home’. Honestly, I was mostly commenting about the none screen activities. This resulted in a pretty eye opening dialogue with just under 100 of you.

But since then a second unexpected dialogue about screen time in general has opened up.

And boy have I had my eyes opened wide.
Through people’s survey responses, through candid answers, through differing opinions. I have learned quite a few things. -About screen time
-About judgment
-About parental guilt
-About parent shaming
-About parental mental health
-About life and priorities
-About people
I’ve cried twice today as a reaction to shared experiences from followers. (And I am humbled that these were shared) I’m pretty floored right now.

I’m rarely speechless, but I need to digest it all before I put it back out there. Tomorrow, I’ll share your responses (keeping everyone anonymous ofcourse). I’ll share some pretty interesting patterns that might make us all think twice. I’ll share some of your collective wisdom that might change a few opinions. And with the permission of a couple of people whose responses totally shocked me, I’ll anonymously share the experiences they so candidly shared with me.

If you don’t usually watch my stories, but you want to be part of that conversation, check out the ‘screen time’ highlight at the top of my profile and weigh in on the questions. If you’ve got a story to share please do. Or if you don’t want to share your own experience, consider watching tomorrow anyway to find out what other people said. You might learn a few things. I know I did.

Meet @frankieandfinnigan
・・・
REAL TALK COMING TO YOU FROM THE COMFORT OF MY SAFE ZONE...my 🏡🐶🐶🐱 Hi, my name is Lindsay and I want you to know that I am mentally ill, and I am finally ok with that. I suffer from MDD & AD (Major Depression Disorder & Anxiety Disorder). Am I ashamed? Nope. This is ME! A huge chunk of my life has consisted of abusive, toxic relationships, zero self worth and confidence, a lifetime of hating my body and believing that I am ugly and undeserving and years of unhappiness and pain that have come my way in so many different forms. This personal post is in honour of ALL those who are fighting, my fight is just as valid as your fight. If this post helps just one human speak up about their struggles to end the stigma around mental health than mission accomplished. Mental illness is real shit. If you are mentally ill and struggling, know that you are one badass mother fucker...because battling your own mind everyday is terrifying.

Just wanted to do a SHOUT OUT to my rad friends that worried that my mental state and Instagram posts were a cry for help.... BUT IM ACTUALLY OK! And thanks for caring about me to contact me directly. I’m just blogging the realities of motherhood... rather than the bullsh you get from 99% of those “mummy bloggers” ugh... cringe. I thought this was a good idea for the real mums to go... “hells yeah... that’s what I’m going through”... but if this triggers feelings that you’re scared about... it’s ok to talk to someone #ruok #postnataldepression #ireallydolovemykids #noneedtoworry #bestfriends #amirambling

• The story of Isabella Jade 💕 5th July 2016 •

21 hours after I gave birth. That's when I first laid eyes on my baby girl.
I had a really crappy pregnancy with Hyperemesis (HG), but I never expected such a traumatic birth.
I had heard of pre-eclampsia. I knew the symptoms to look out for. Nothing in my pregnancy was out of the ordinary except for HG, some swelling & headaches. I was told it's normal. 40+3 I went into labour. 7 hours flew by of soaking myself in every water source until I started getting that urge to push. I started getting some uncontrollable head twitches& I was told to relax, I know I was trying to stop but couldn't. I was assisted to the bed to start pushing. That's all I remember.
I had 5 seizures altogether. In between fits the med team assisted me in pushing enough for them to birth bub with forceps after an episiotomy. Isabella was born en caul via forceps as it was too late for a caesar. She was barely breathing and had very little improvement after 10 mins. She was rushed to NICU for help.
I was sedated and intubated and rushed to HICU as the birth didn't fix things as expected. What was meant to be 3 days (I had enough for an elephant literally) turned into 16 hours as I was stubborn and woke up much earlier than expected with no memory as to what happened.
Funny enough I woke up and the first person I asked for was Chris, just so he could bring me a frozen coke 🤣 seriously those tubes suck!
I still struggle now, 2.5 years on. I have injuries from what happened. I have PND. I have reoccurring memory loss. I don't remember my daughters first 6 months.
But I'm blessed, because we are both alive and healthy.
Isabella is my free spirit, my wild child with the most gorgeous soul. She's my beautiful fairy. She saved me and continues to save me. Right now is what matters. ✨ •

I've been tired, consumed and feeling like hibernating but I have not turned inwards and depressed, I am learning that there are patches in our lives that are hard, and dark and I can cope. I will shine again, its not forever and I shouldn't be dealing with it any other way. The world places so many mistruths on how we should deal and cope with change, and part of my depression has always been about "everyone else" does better, is better, the curse of the "I'm useless" thoughts and it's still in me but those voices are getting quieter. I'm finding it easier to accept I am who I am and I was not born to be a carbon copy but to be me, and I do things my way - including giving my girls Elvis hair at Bath time.

Do I look like a tennis player?.
🎾
Ok, ok....so this tip is a gooden. And this week I have caught myself walking past things and thinking ‘nah, I’ll do that later’ and then thinking....’dammit, it will only take 3 minutes or so...(less than 5) so I have then done it straight away.
💁🏼‍♀️
Firstly, it felt good to get it done. AND now coming to the end of the week all the small 5 mins have meant I now don’t have a lot of house work!!!.
🎤*drop.
So. If it takes less than 5 min...DO IT NOW!!!!.
👯‍♀️
Ps. Of course there is a Coby sex joke in there.

A classic case of high copper levels post pregnancy triggering constant anxiety. Postpartum, women can feel surges of anxiety and panic, not knowing that this can be an actual physiological issue that can be tangeably tested.

Pregnancy after infertility often takes away that joyful naive bliss that we were so hoping for. There’s anxiety, trepidation and then relief after each ultrasound

I love this boy so much. He is the sweetest, funniest little boy and he makes me laugh 🤭🤪😂🤣😂.
.
Confession: I had both pre- and post-natal depression with Master T. When I found out I was pregnant with # 2, joy and excitement were not emotions I felt... at all. I already had one very full on one year old and I dreaded having another baby thrown into the mix. .
.
Fortunately I had an amazing midwife, the same one I had when I was pregnant the first time, who was incredibly supportive, and helped organise in-home support for several months to help with housework. I don’t know how I would’ve coped otherwise. My husband was always at work, my family lived far away and my closest friends were a 30 minute drive away. .
.
I still feel guilty sometimes when I think about how much I didn’t want a second child.... and I won’t lie, having two so close together was bloody hard work, but I wouldn’t trade him for the world. I couldn’t imagine life without him now.
.

Reading about the @nctcharity #hiddenhalf campaign this week and wanted to share.... Of 1000 women who were surveyed, half had had a mental health or emotional problem during pregnancy or postnatally - and nearly half of these women hadn’t had their problem identified by a health professional and hadn’t received any help or treatment. NCT are campaigning for better six week postnatal checkups, which would help bring this number down and make sure that everyone gets the support they need. You can read about the campaign on their website: http://www.nct.org.uk/hiddenhalf⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Anxiety can feel like it is all consuming, that you are no longer in control.
But you are.. it is only temporary, you ARE in control, one step at a time, you've made it through 💯% of them so far, you will make it through this one.
Anxiety does not define you.
There are so many tools and techniques out there that can help you regain your control.
If you need someone to talk to just send me a DM, I would love to help you 💕🙏💕

Meet Sophia (& her running buddy Leika)

”Thank you!! Your work is life changing! ❤ Feeling a bit emotional at the end of the challenge, might need to watch out for a bit of post challenge blues like I experienced at the end of the running challenge.
I'm proud of myself for completing runs and workouts mostly after the kids have gone to bed. •
But I'm most proud of the fact that the mental health and happiness of my family unit has improved. My exercise has inspired my hubby to get more active again and we both feel calmer and more energised. Then you can live more in the moment and embrace life with little kids - the ups and the downs.
I've absolutely loved being part of this awesome community of mums. That we have supported each other and been able to share our vulnerable side. Big kisses to you all! 💕”
