What do people need to know about postnatal depression?
I have been asked to speak at a Mothers’ Day service at North Porirua Baptist Church. They are inviting parents from their community and want me to speak about PND.
I’m going to tell some of my story, perhaps structured around some key headings:
- PND Surprises (what most people don’t know about PND)
- How to Help
- God, Hope and PND
I thought I’d ask you for your feedback. If you’ve been following this series on my experience of PND, I’d love you to leave a comment telling us:
- what you have learnt about PND and what most surprised you about it
- how or whether you feel equipped to support a friend with PND if you found out tomorrow there was a need.
I’ll take care of the third heading myself, although if you have had an experience of PND and want to comment on where God was/is in it, and where hope was to be found, I’d certainly love to hear your thoughts, publicly or privately.
