There are topics that I know I write about extremely well. Ones where my words ring across the blogosphere and have the power to move people and to change minds. On other topics, very important topics, it is other voices that have that power.
- AOL News Story Makes Outrageous Comments About Postpartum Depression by Katherine Stone from Postpartum Progress
- The Monster in the Closet by Catherine Connors from Her Bad Mother
- [edited to add] An Open Letter to Pat Brown by Amy at Pretty Babies (note: This includes two replies from so-called "expert" Pat Brown justifying her remarks)
- [edited to add] Media Sensationalism, AOL, and Postpartum Mood Disorders by Lauren Hale at My Postpartum Voice
Postpartum depression is real. Moms who suffer from it need help to be better today and tomorrow. To do right by themselves, their children and their families. They don't need to be classified as killers. Read Katherine and Catherine and Amy and Lauren. Spread the word. Please.
