Anneke Schagen's curator insight, December 15, 2013 7:09 PM

I am so glad to see something written about depression during pregnancy. It is a fundamental time for the mother and the unborn child. The mum to be can feel in top of her depression so much guilt as well for not feeling on top of the world and because of that suppress her feelings which will make it even worse. Knowing  you are not alone and that there is help out there will make such a difference.
