Hi everyone. Tamara here!
As many of you likely know, October is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness month. As parents ourselves, Pregnancy and Infant Loss is a subject very near and dear to the hearts of everyone at Lil Helper. In fact, after a chance encounter with a very special customer on Facebook in 2016, our CEO Mohammed introduced a Guarantee Policy unique to Lil Helpers to address this very issue– The God Forbid Guarantee.
The Hardest Part
For me, the hardest part was the guilt.
There are so many feelings of guilt around Postpartum Depression.
Bringing a new baby into this world is supposed to be a blessed time full of happiness. So, when you feel anything but blessed and happy, guilt is often inevitable.
I didn’t deal with postpartum depression with my first, at all. With my second I only had a mild case of baby blues the first couple of weeks. So, when I was struggling with severe depression after the birth of my third baby, the guilt over feeling less joy for him ate at me.
