Postpartum Depression and Postpartum Anxiety in Hawaii

Although it is frequently called Postpartum Depression, or PPD for short, many mothers feel more anxiety than sadness or depression.  They can’t fall asleep when baby sleeps, even when they are tired.  They worry throughout the day (and night) about all the things that could possibly happen to this tiny human being entrusted in their care.  They may feel like bad moms.  I know these things from experience.

There wasn’t anything here in Hawaii to support me or educate me about “PPD” and I was completely unaware of its existance.  This is what prompted forming PPD Support HI–supporting, educating, and bringing awareness to moms, parents, and professionals in Hawaii.  –since 2004.
