I saw a segment on CNN headline news about PPD. I am a new dad (I have a four month old son) and my wife is suffering from PPD. She has been hospitalized three times for wanting to hurt herself and is now currently being hospitalized for thinking of hurting the baby. It has been a trying time for both of us. I thank you for your website and the information in it. I am now going to seek counseling for myself at the suggestion of your site. My biggest worry is her coming home and trusting her again.

It has been a difficult year for me and my family, but I am hoping that the worst is behind us. Over the past four months my wife has improved dramatically with the help of medicine, counseling and support from different families and agencies. I would not have made in through without a strong supporting family and my faith. It was hard to believe I wasn’t alone, but it was good that your website showed me that I wasn’t and that PPD is something people are beginning to understand and recognize.
