My YouTube Channel
INTRODUCTION VIDEO IN ENGLISH (the French version is the second video)
Welcome to my YouTube channel. I am passionate about everything related to postpartum mental health. Having suffered from a severe postpartum mood disorder in 2009-2010, I have since decided to share my story and raise awareness on this topic to try to stop the stigma attached to it. Statistics show that as many as 1 in 5 women experience some type of perinatal mood and anxiety disorder and that one in ten fathers experience depression, so why are we talking about it so little or even not at all? That’s why I created my YouTube channel to tell each chapter of my story, but also to present other testimonials from mothers and fathers who have experienced a difficult postpartum period because of a postpartum mood or anxiety disorder. My greatest desire is that these stories I share with you open the doors to discussion and education. I sincerely hope that they will invite other mothers and fathers to share their difficult postpartum experience and that together we will break down the stigma related to mental illness during this important period, which is far from receiving the full attention it deserves. Finally, I want you to know that there is hope and that with professional help, it is possible to recover.
