(pregnancy & Postpartum Psychosis)

Join us in our efforts to address the  most severe of pregnancy & postpartum mood disorders: pregnancy & postpartum psychosis (also known as perinatal psychosis or puerperal psychosis). This is our 2nd annual PPP Awareness Day and the FIRST ever US-based international fundraising effort for PPP awareness. We know awareness is crucial for saving lives, prevention of trauma and aiding recovery.

When I was discharged I went to my parents’ house because my husband was still recovering from the stomach bug at our house. That’s where I had my first psychotic episode 4 days postpartum. I was trying to take a nap but was preoccupied because I couldn’t feel any pain from my c-section even while pressing down on my incision. I knew something was wrong, I just wasn’t sure what. My mom tried to get me to relax by telling me to count backward from 100. I got to 99 and got stuck.
