Written by Cassandra Germsheid

Continued from page 1

Suffering from postpartum depression can be life changing. But you need to realize that it is not your fault. You aren't alone in this. Even Brooke Shields had postpartum depression, and she has written a book about it. Things will get better. And until they do, there are many different support systems - friends, family, doctors and nurses, peer groups, counsellors, and hotlines.

Postpartum depression can be mild, moderate, or severe - so talk to your doctor to determine what type of treatment is best for you.
