Karen Kleiman, founder of the Postpartum Stress Center and illustrator, Molly McIntyre, have teamed up to give a voice to what is often the silent pain associated with postpartum depression.

 

These comics show what women say in response to seemingly innocent questions versus what they actually think, giving real insight into what it is like for mothers suffering with postpartum depression. The internal dialogues depicted in these comics are honest, authentic and unfortunately, representative of the struggles many mothers have to deal with alone.

 

We hope these images and continued discussion on the topic will push the needle forward in normalizng the conversation about postpartum depression.
