A huge thank you to +CNN and Kelly Wallace for covering #postpartumdepression  and #postpartumanxiety  and treating it as an important issue. #parenting  
Postpartum depression affects about 15% of new mothers. One mother, Katherine Stone, is crusading to increase awareness.

I just read your input on post partum and breastfeeding. I have come to a crossroads recently and realize I have to make a change. I'm entirely too obsessed with getting upset at my older son and my anxiety that something or someone will harm baby and I have intrusive thoughts. I feel horrible with those fears everyday. I want to enjoy my baby and at times I feel guilty enjoying her like I don't even deserve such a precious angel. I think with my overwhelming schedule and trying to BF is becoming too much. After reading I feel more comfortable in making a positive change no matter what.

Can you tell whether a new mom is struggling just by how she looks? Would you have known that these moms had #postpartumdepression  or #postpartumanxiety  ? I'm guessing the answer is no.

What are your risk factors for #postpartumdepression  or #postpartumanxiety  ? Why did you get sick and not the mom next to you? Is it all just about brain chemistry? We've got answers.

Based on my personal experience, I wouldn't buy from this company. I ordered one of their products, which should have arrived 2 weeks ago, and it still hasn't. What's worse, there's no live contact person to speak to, and sometimes they don't return emails or phone calls. We have been unable to contact them this week, and aren't even sure at this point if they're even still there. So right now I'm out nearly $500 on a product that I ordered in plenty of time and needed as of this week. That's my two cents. Caveat emptor.
