What an amazing read and I thank local Momee Friend, Bridget Croteau for putting it all out there and writing a book that is not only an easy read but, is so informative and authentic.
If you or someone you know is going through Postpartum Depression and/or anxiety it is okay. You are not alone. One of many things I take away from this book is to make time for YOU. Self care not only benefits you but, those around you, as well. There is nothing wrong with asking for help and guess what the “need to do it all” puts so much stress on us daily and we do not need to do it all.
The book is empowering, inspiring and a book I highly recommend reading.
I love how the book is written. I feel like I am sitting on the couch having a conversation with Bridget as I read through the pages. I felt like I really got to know her as she describes her feelings and talks about the support of her amazing family throughout the book. There were a lot of relatable moments for me in the book as a mom of two young girls, as well. Also, Bridget’s husband Beau and my husband Mike are very similar. You can feel the love he has for her through her words and when we are going through something difficult in our lives we need a good support system and I can clearly see that Bridget has a wonderful support system at home (with her husband and parents) and in her therapy groups.
Here are two pages from the book that I gravitated towards and could relate to:
Bridget’s courage to write this book will help others who are going through Postpartum Depression and will encourage them to find the help they need and know that everything will be okay. YOU ARE STRONG and not alone!
