It’s hard to know what’s going on inside other people’s minds, even the people closest to us.
Those we love can be suffering and we may never know the extent of their pain. For new mothers, dealing with postpartum depression (PPD) can be a confusing and lonely time. According to Postpartum Progress, between 11 and 20 percent of women who give birth experience symptoms of PPD and many don’t tell anyone about their experiences. In fact, only 15 percent of those suffering with PPD ever receive professional help.
One new mother who suffered from postpartum depression was Flo Leung. Her story ended in tragedy, but her husband wants to share what she went through in hopes of helping others.
Flo (short for Florence) was a beautiful woman who seemed to have everything going for her in life.
She and her husband, Kim Chen, loved each other and were excited to start a family together.
