I am wondering what role models you may have had as a child or young women for being a mother? your own? or a tv role model? I wonder if the lack of healthy mothers as role models is a contributing factor to women getting depressed. As a young women growing up in the 70's and 80's I was encouraged to get a career and make $$. Now as a stay at home mom of two I found myself with PPD and I have come up with a theory that part of it is a backlash from the feminist movement, to be brief. I'm not looking to place blame or call anyone who works a bad mother, I just wonder what other moms with PPD think of this.
