My world was rocked when I saw the look on my wife’s face. Jenna was always a steady person, a rock in our relationship. If anything, I was the emotional basket case. But the look in her eyes communicated something I had never seen in her before.
My wife just delivered our first child, a daughter named Elsie. Two short days after the birth, I began to see changes. Jenna was afraid constantly. She was emotional and disconnected. Some doctors told us it was just the baby blues. I was convinced it was something more.
Shortly after, Jenna was diagnosed with severe postpartum depression, and we began the long treatment process. We caught it quickly, but there was no way to cut to the end of the story.
At the time of writing this, my wife and I had been working to treat her condition for a month and a half. She was not “out of the woods” by any stretch of the imagination. Still, I did not want to wait until she was “better” to start this website. UPDATE from Jenna – Some Good News!
I have a decade of experience in digital marketing and wanted to use my knowledge to create a useful resource for people just like us. My wife and I have worked with some of the best medical content writers, mental health professionals and other patients to create a resource designed to help others.
Jenna and I are not unique. We’re just like most of you reading this, and we want to walk through this wilderness together.
Jenna supports this website 100%. We are both proud to live out our passion of encouraging women and educating families.
You are not alone. You are home now.
Blessings, Chris & Jenna Carberg
