"Hi, my name is Sondra. I’ve been a part of Postpartum Support International for 3 years now. I love being able to connect with families who are looking for someone to just listen to them. It’s taught me that my battle with postpartum depression was not in vain. My journey has allowed me to help so many others.
Always remember, you are not alone in this journey. I am here for you, it’s not always going to be like this. Some days are REALLY heard and that’s ok. It’s ok to not be ok. But know that someone is here for you."
