Postpartum Rage: My Story

wpid-img_20141213_200444.jpgI have the pleasure of being over at Postpartum Progress this week.  It is my honor and privilege to be a member of the editorial team.  This week, I am discussing one of the most personal topics of my struggle.  I have never posted in detail on my blog about my struggle with postpartum rage.  Join me please.  Help me smash stigma by talking about the struggles that new parents go through.  We are none of us alone.


About tranquilamama

Juggling parenthood, housework and working outside the home in the corporate world with my wonderful husband. Mom to 2 beautiful girls. PPD and PPA survivor. The title of my blog is after a phrase that was repeated to me in Spain during my semester abroad in college. It roughly translates to relax and calm down. Trying to tame my inner perfectionist and just be a good enough mom.

    I admire you so much for putting your story out there, especially the part about pushing your husband. You should know that my only reaction while reading it was compassion for YOU and admiration for your openness. Sounds like such a difficult time. I hope you feel just incredibly proud of yourself for working through it. You, your husband, your girls, the whole family, sounds so amazing.

    I’ve been really stressed out lately with work and feel like I’m carrying around a lot of anger. Not quite rage, but very easily irritated and always just a little angry. (I’m realizing while typing this that I’ve mentioned this before… sorry for repeating myself and turning this into ALL ABOUT ME… ugh.) Anyway, I would love to hear any advice you have after your experience.
