Postpartum Series

dayspostpartumIn October 2015, I took a 31 day writing challenge when I was 5 weeks postpartum.  The arrival of my third daughter was transformative, and I believe it was the first time I did NOT experience postpartum depression.  I hope you enjoy, or at least appreciate, my raw writing.

My older children were 3 years old (almost 4) and 1 (almost 2). At this time I was on an 11 week maternity leave from my self-employment as a massage therapist.
