PND End the stigma

Boo and Me

I found this badge, and site, through A place of my own and was touched by her frankness about "experiencing" Post Natal Depression rather than "suffering". 

Five of my friends have experienced PND with their first children, at least one of them having been previously depressed. All of them have made good recoveries, three of them have gone on to have more children, the other two didn't but I don't think that PND was the reason in either case.

I too support talking about PND, not as a fellow experiencee, but as a friend of those who have.
