Here's a #factfriday:

According to the CDC, anywhere between 11-20% of women who give birth each year have postpartum depression symptoms. Averaging that percentage to 15%, and considering the number of live births in the US each year, it means that about 600,000 U.S. women will experience PPD each year.
It gets more interesting: this statistic doesn't include women who have miscarriages or stillborns each year, and they are also still susceptible to postpartum depression. SO if we change it to 6 million recognized pregnancies each year, and take that 15%, it goes up to 900,000 women who will experience PPD.

To me, these statistics make me want to help my new mother friends much more than I have been, as well as give more support to those who have experienced loss through their pregnancy.

What do these statistics mean to you?

This wife's Spotlight is one that is incredibly inspiring to me. Kinsey openly shares her battle with postpartum depression last year and the extreme emotional toll that took on her and her marriage.

"It has probably been the most challenging thing we have gone through as a couple. In fact, I was almost positive that our marriage wouldn’t make it. I didn’t even think that I would still be here alive."

Now with a better handle on things, she is giving advice on what she has been doing to manage her PPD and shares the preventative measures they are taking with a third baby on the way.

I'm so grateful Kinsey was willing to share this because I think many people need to hear how very real this can be.

I don’t know how legitimate all these prenup details are, but if my husband wanted to sign a prenup that said he gets half a million dollars if I weigh over 135 pounds, I would break it off right then!
I get that assets need to be protected, but can you imagine agreeing to some of these terms going into marriage?

As much as I love the opportunity that Valentine's Day brings to tell and show your spouse how much you love them, this #freshfridays quote reminds me that we need to be doing this more often and consistently. We need to create that "pattern" he's referring to! Something you can follow, something regular, and even reliable.

Create a pattern of little things you do to let your spouse know how much they mean to you, and your spouse will make a similar pattern of doing that, too. You will both begin to count on it, and rely on it to strengthen your marriage, and guess what? That selfless kind of pattern will do just that! :)

Happy weekend!
