Yvette is from Sydney and runs a blog that gives an insight into PND. You can follow along with her blog here.
"The pinnacle of my postnatal depression resulted in psychriatric care. I felt humiliated that I let this disease get the better of myself, my husband, and my son.
Looking back, it was the right thing for me. My time in hospital allowed me to rest, reflect, and take a step back from my surroundings of my PND. The stigma around mental health and psychriatric care is still silenced.
I am not afraid to admit I have been there. If you need help - do not be afraid to seek help.
Suffering in silence is detrimental to one's wellbeing. There is so much the mind and body can handle. I have learned that psychriatric care is an element to the road of recovery and I believe that society should embrace that notion."
