I just read the EmpowHer news story about Gwyneth Paltrow's recent interview where she says that her postpartum depression was staved off when she started eating healthy, doing acupuncture, and getting in touch with her spirituality.
I send many kudos Gwyneth's way for recognizing that she had PPD and was able to find techniques that helped.
At the same time, I want to offer a word of caution that sometimes PPD is so severe that no amount of vegies, prayers or needles will make an impact.
There are so many wonderful and lifesaving options out there, such as talk therapy, yoga, anti-depressants, journaling, exercise, etc., etc. We're so fortunate to have access to so many different resources to help us, no matter how severe our PPD may be.
