After my second pregnancy, I went through a very serious depression. I developed post partum very badly. I didn’t want to take care of either of my children. All I wanted to do was stay in bed and watch tv. Or all I wanted to do was cry. So, my husband kicked my butt into the Dr.’s office and I asked for some anti-depressants and was told to find a moms group. He said that the hospital had plenty that I could attend. I looked into it and found that there were a lot of baby classes but they didn’t want me to bring my 1 year old as well. So I had to find something else. I did a search on the internet and found MOMS Club.
MOMS Club international is a club all about moms helping other moms. My local chapter helped me get out of my funk. It is very difficult having two children that are both so close in age. They would take either child from me whenever I needed to tend to the other. If it wasn’t for them I can’t imagine having been able to do all of the fun activities that I get to do with my kids. We go all kinds of places together and my children get to interact with other kids their ages and I can take both of them. Also, I get the benefit of having conversation with other adults. Moms need interaction. Esp, depressed moms.
These are my MOMS Club friends blogs:
The rest of my fellow MOMS are all facebook junkies. I used to be a facebook junkie, but now I’m addicted to blogging. Totally, ignore my children addicted. 😉 Not really, I’ve been teaching Zoe her ABC’s and Miles can say A, baby, Zoe, momma, dadda, pick up, yummm(means he’s hungry) and lots of other things, so I must spend some time with them. They are leaning like little spunges.
THANK YOU MOMS Club. You have saved me, my marriage, and my kids happiness.
