Does being depressed mean that I can't
be a good mother?
It is not uncommon for depressed
mothers to feel guilt and shame about their depression. This guilt and
shame will often manifest itself as insecurities about the ability to
mother. Depressed mothers need to know that PMD is a medical illness like
any other medical condition.
It is not their "fault" and
is not a reflection of being a "bad" mother. Mothers with PMD who
are responding to treatment are perfectly capable of taking care of their
child and can be as "good" a mother as any other woman.
