Episode #42 – Postpartum Depression, Shame, and Releasing Ideal Motherhood Expectations (Anonymom series)

November 5, 2020

< back to blog home

Welcome to my Anonymom series.  Real moms talking about their deepest and darkest moments – anonymously.  Anonymom episodes may consist of difficult topics including miscarriage, infertility, separation, anxiety, depression, trauma, and other potentially triggering issues.  Names have been changed to protect the identity of the mom.

This episode features Noelle, mom to a 20 month old son who had a condition and required open heart surgery when he was just 4.5 months old.

Noelle also talks to us about..

– her struggle with postpartum depression, shame, and anxiety, as well as how these showed up for her in her day to day life (e.g., thoughts of wanting to leave, illogical thought patterns)

– her experience with an ectopic rupture and how she coped

– her experience in therapy, practical things she does on a daily basis to maintain her recovery, and how we’re all in it together
