Le sigh.

    Oh, I do hope you’re able to escape, safely, soon.

    Me, I’m stuck at home with the rugrat. F-ing snow day. đŸ™‚

    All those stories are sure to drain me of any potential build-up of tears… Holy… Move over chick flicks; there’s a new sob fest in town! Someone pass me some tissues….. :-s SO hard to even read other peoples’ stories. I figured it would be easier to read than my own, but really isn’t. Kills me.

    My heart goes out to any mom suffering from PPD. Big hugz from me to all.

    Oh my Lord. These were really really terrible for me to read. I hate that there are so many moms out there who have sat at home alone with newborn babies, with no one to take care of them. New moms need to be taken care of so that they don’t have to do anything but nurse their babies and sleep. In every other culture, women are taken care of around the clock by extended family members for the first several months postpartum. This is why we have so much PPD and so many failed breastfeeding stories.

    Ladies, your body is not broken. It has the ability to provide enough milk, it has the ability to nourish your baby without pain. It just can’t do it without support. Everyone please please please, if another child is on the horizon, line up help for the postpartum period ahead of time. If you don’t have family and friends who can help, save a little money each month and splurge on a postpartum doula. You can find one in your area at http://www.dona.org. Don’t let history repeat itself. These stories just break my heart!

    Thor – thanks for including me. Again, I really hadn’t intended to be an entrant and definitely don’t feel like I should be on the same list as the amazing women you list above.

    I was also thinking last night that between this and the birth stories, you should consider putting an anthology together with these great writers and get it out to the dead-tree readers of the world. There’s a lot to be learned in these stories for future parents and parents-to-be.

    I spent a good hour and a box of tissues last night reading everyone’s stories.

    It helps me to hear that others went through the same thing. I hope it helps everybody else, too.
