My name is Catherine and I'm a health reporter with The Huffington Post. I've posted here once before and got wonderful responses; I'm now hoping to get more voices for another story I'm working on looking at depression and weaning.
I'm trying to get a handle on how much of a problem this is, both for moms who wean voluntarily and those who don't, and would love to connect with people who experienced some form of depression around weaning. What did it feel like for you? Was it expected? What did you do to cope? Do you feel like there is enough information out there on this?
If any of you have had this experience and would be willing to talk, I am happy to speak on the phone or via e-mail -- it shouldn't take more than 5-10 minutes.
Many thanks for any help you're able to provide, and thank you for letting me post here.
