PPD it is a very real problem, please be aware and seek help. If you want to know where it can lead you read my thread from the ER to the Psych ward. Take care of yourself if you are impacted by this condition. Also I am all about Autism Awareness, be aware it impacts more people than you know. I am a very firm believer in supporting and helping others, if you would like to know more about anything let me know.

Ashton and Mackenzie the Loves of my Life

Proud to be an April 2009 due date buddy!

I am also super proud to be part of the MMAH. I love my March Mommies and all our beautiful March Babies

Hi I am Amy, proud mommy to a beautiful baby boy Ashton Parker. He was born March 31, 2009 after over 24 hours in labor. 14.5 hours after they broke my water. He is beautiful and the love of my life. I can't wait to raise him up and see what happens as we continue through our life! My husband and I just got married in July 2008. We got a surprise from our honeymoon. Ashton was due mid April, but arrived on March 31. We are thrilled to have our baby boy. April 17th was the due date of my little girl, Mackenzie Rose, she arrived on March 20th at 36 weeks. My water broke and that was all. She came via C-Sec and weighed in at 6 pounds 6 ounces 18 inches, with her and Ashton I have the perfect family. Mackenzie was born in respiratory distress with a 1 minute APGAR of 5, but she came around beautifully
