Do online support groups help moms cope with PPD?

Hello Moms!

I'm working on a graduate paper about postpartum depression and technology. My theory is that women suffering from PPD can benefit greatly from online support groups. Please email me if you agree or disagree at, subject "Online Support Groups."

Thanks in advance,

  • I totally agree! I suffered from PPD and I looked for online groups but couldn't find any

  • I joined one here on cafemom. I think it helped to an extent, just knowing that I wasn't alone helped greatly. My main support came from my family...without my husband, I don't think I'd be here.
