Daughter talks about PostPartum Depression : Heartbreaking Story

Postpartum depression is starting to become increasingly well-known as more mothers are opening up about their own experiences after birthing their children. Georgina Onuoha is the latest of these mothers.

She said she had just moved overseas and had a husband who was always busy working. She was suffering from postpartum depression and isolation and being alone in a foreign land without friends compounded matters.

Sharing her story, she the actress writes:

“Memory lane

“12 years ago with Chigozie at arm and 7 months heavily pregnant with Chimezie.
I was tired, homesick and depressed. Barely 8 months in a new country, no friends, no family, I was a loner with a partner who was always extremely busy with work as a medical doctor. Life was rough and, of course, like most new moms I suffered postpartum depression and isolation.

“Thank God my mom had to leave everything to come stay with me till my baby was born and she left two weeks after that. Having two infants at arms is not for the faint of heart. Baby blues was my partner and tears overwhelmed me daily.”
