  • I'm fairly certain those videos are biased in some form or another, so I won't watch them until after I have told you my opinion:

    I had severe PPD. Bad enough that I could have been hospitalized for it . Anything that makes it easier for new mothers to get help is a wonderful thing.

  • I dont personally believe in anti depressants and such. They just aren't right for me. But I know mothers who take it and are perfectly fine. I have heard of and seen bad results from Effexor, so I strongly suggest against it. but to each his own. They help some women and not others. Everyone is different.
