Any youtubers?

Hello everyone,

I thought I might just ask if there are any youtubers around who have suffered pp?

I remember when I was ill and in a MBU I foolishly looked up the illness on YouTube and all I found were horrific stories of women who hadn't got well. I kind of thought as a way of getting better I would put my story out there on YouTube (scary I know!). I've also made a video on bonding with baby and a video that focused on my recovery. I feel the need to reach out to people and to help. If I can help 1 mumma I would be really happy.

Has anyone ever considered making a YouTube video about your experience of pp? If you want to look at my YouTube channel here's the link

It would be awesome if there was a pp community of awesome women sharing and supporting one another. Just a thought

Best wish warrior women. Xx

Hello Dannicole

Well done for such an insightful video that will be a light in the darkness to any new mum suffering PP.

What an amazing mum you are putting this video together even though it's only been six and a half months since your son was born and you were struck with PP. I could hardly string a sentence together, let alone appear on camera for the first six months after I had PP, so you should be very proud of yourself.

I remember in your other thread that you were hoping to remain on sick leave, so I hope your GP has helped with that. It's very early days in your recovery and returning to work needs to be a gradual process when you have been through so much.

Take very good care of yourself ...... lovely to see you here :)
