An easy-to-read survival guide for those struggling under the relentless weight of postpartum depression.

Written by a mother who understands exactly how it feels to see yourself as the worst parent in the world. It Wasn’t Supposed to be Like This is for those of us who didn’t realize how dark and lonely the postpartum experience could be.

When the joy and sense of bonding with your child aren’t there, it’s easy to believe you’re not getting it or not doing it right. When you can’t bring yourself to brush your teeth or take a shower, it can lead you to feel like a failure not only to yourself but to this fragile new person you’ve brought into the world.

Designed for exhausted, stressed-out parents:

Short, simple chapters that are quick and easy to read
Sprinkled with humor and authentic stories from the trenches
Raw conversations about the realities of modern parenting
Can be read in any order. No rules, no judgment.

It Wasn’t Supposed to be Like This was created to help part the dark clouds of depression and allow you to discover a glimmer of hope that guides you forward.

Despite the guilt, loneliness, and fear you might be feeling—you are not alone—and we can get through this together.
