When It's gave birth to her first child, she suffered from post partum depression but didn't realize it on time, thankfully it wasn't too late.

"When I gave birth to my first child, I didn't feel alright after the first week.I didn't know what postpartum depression is then, so I didn't think of it. My symptoms grew worse and I avoided contact with my child. I stopped feeding her because I couldn't bear to see her. My Wonderful husband noticed what was wrong and picked up the reins. He made it his duty to feed and look after our child".

Three months after delivery, Ira wasn't feeling better, she knew that it was time to see a doctor. She was diagnosed with postpartum depression on her first visit and immediately kept on medications and therapy because she suffered from a Severe case which caused her to be suicidal.

" I started counseling and continued for ten months. I didn't see the progress in the first few months, and almost gave up. But as time went by, I began to feel better and I could hold my child again. I also began to seek out women who have/had postpartum depression which was when I found CICLE. I read an article on PPD and I'd say it gave me a clearer perspective. I read stories on postpartum depression experiences and took my medications judiciously. I don't think I want more children because of the severity of the depression.

If you feel lost and sad because of postpartum depression, I want to assure you that things can be better. Seek professional help and help from your family. You need all the support you can get.
