Having had severe PPD (PND) after my twins, I can completely relate to her. I too just wanted to give up, basically wanting to run away and be homeless because I thought my kids would be better off without me. I went to one meeting for new moms and just cried the whole time thinking that I’m not good enough to even be there with them. The counselor came to me at the end and said I needed more help than just this meeting. With much coaching from family, I finally got up my courage to see my doctor who then prescribed antidepressants. It took a couple weeks for the full effect but we all hung in there and it made a world of difference. Maybe that will also help her and just knowing that she is not alone. Love to you mummy. ❤️ Hang in there.
