Tonight’s #PPDChat was about depression during pregnancy.
Prior to the first chat at 1pm ET, I decided to search for “Pregnant Woman” via Google images. Wanna know what I found? I bet you already know.
Smiling pregnant women. All of them happy and glowing. 30 pages in, I gave up.
I asked both chats to send pictures of themselves, pregnant, not glowing, REAL.
Will you share too? I want to show moms that not all pregnant women smile. That it’s OKAY to look (and be) something other than happy during pregnancy. Can you help?
Email your photos to me at mypostpartumvoice (@) gmail (dot) com. Subject Line: Real Pregnancy Photos.
You totally Rock. Let’s show the world pregnancy isn’t all happy grins. Time to get real.
