Beautiful, WAMF. Thank you! <3
Miss you erthemama! Candice
Thank you so much for producing such a powerful piece. Our Village supports
a lot of mamas who work VERY hard to parent from a place of love, respect
and compassion. (It seems to us that we have a lot in common.) Yours in
Attachment Parenting- Attachment Parents’ Village Calgary Society
Heartfelt and powerful!!! Great collaboration WAMF members. Thank you Amy
and Jenn for creating this. I cried my heart out while watching (and
afterwards) the video and KNOW that if the minimum result of watching this,
is that people cry, people have been positively effected. Crying is often
held back much of the time as to keep ‘strong’, but strength can be re
energized, when you outlet emotion in a safe and acceptable manner.
Such an amazing and much needed video!
Wow! So powerful. Thank you too all those involved in the process!!!
Very encouraging and heartwarming to see the time and effort put in by so
many to let women see the faces of others who have suffered and/or are
willing to help. I experienced PPD with my second child and used some of
these same quotes as a mantra to get me though and resume positive thinking
🙂 …feeling the love, nice job!
…feeling the love over here in BC btw
Beautiful, powerful, connecting. I could have used this 5 years ago! It
will help so many mamas (and dads – they can suffer too). Thank you all for
your honesty, love and time.
What a great video. Now I know if I ever kill my children by drowning them
in the bathtub, it’s not my fault. Let’s shift the blame away!
This is about no one else feeling so lost and desperate that they do such a
thing ever again. People suffering from post partum psychosis are sick and
need help just like with any other health issue. They are loving parents;
so loving that they listen to the voices in their heads telling them their
children would be better off dead than in this world. Lisa Gibson asked for
help and accepted treatment. Our care system and our society failed her.
These deaths will not be in vain if I can help it.
I’m in tears. I have no other words except, thank you. 🙂
If the father had drowned the children, would you all be defending him? How
about some gender equality here, folks. Absolutely disgusting.
Eep. I accidently clicked vote down and I don’t know how to fix it. I’m
No one is “defending” anyone. Obviously you didn’t watch the video. It’s
not about Ms. Gibson, it’s about the sadness we felt that people get sick
and don’t get needed help. It’s about PPMD and raising awareness so people
know what to watch for and get support. We hope to prevent more deaths. If
a father was suffering from a PPMD (they do) and made a fatally misguided
decision I would absolutely still be working to raise awareness. Assuming I
wouldn’t because of gender is ignorant at best.
Wow. Beautiful video..having suffer PPD and depression..anxiety and gotten
over agoraphobia without any meds..this incan appreciate 🙂 Go Moms! But
they should also do a video for men..and even my husband got the daddy
blues when our daughter was first born..she’s now 3 and well ..I’ll leave.
It at that 3
