The story of two women who went through post partum depression and lived to tell the tale

1st November, 2014

For most new mothers, the birth of a baby is usually the best gift life can offer. Such mothers take time to bond with their newborn babies while relatives and friends share in the celebration. However, for certain women, the birth of their babies is usually the onset of a terrible depression. They lose the will to live and attempt to kill themselves as well as their babies. Doctors say such women suffer from post partum depression but are unable to talk about their feelings because of the fear of being judged by the society.
