“Every mom’s an expert in her own life. I wouldn’t be able to prescribe the best resource for them because I’m not living her life. It’s critical we have a menu of programming available depending on the situation and circumstances.” -Tonya Fulwider, @PostpartumHelp, @POEM_Ohio

“When talking to mom about #PPD, use gentle language,” suggests Adrienne, @PostpartumVA . “Like, ‘You seem really down’ or ‘You don’t look like yourself; tell me what’s going on’. Stay away from medical jargon like ‘I’m going to assess you for depression and refer you out."

"She's my biggest inspiration, the light of my life. Even in the worst times she always has the biggest smile on. They say she won’t achieve much, but she's already done more than I ever will." The sweet story one brother wrote for his sister w/ #CDKL5: https://t.co/YJM1C2358J
