Opening Up about Post Natal Depression


The  J O Y  –  T R I B E … is a gathering of the beautiful souls who have enriched my life through blogging and connecting. Every now and then I will share a little interview, or simply some of the ways that someone has made the world a better place.

Yvette documents her experience of severe post natal depression openly through her blog ‘She is Sacred‘ and her social media. I have so much admiration and respect for the people who choose to do this, they are shining the light that is needed by those still trapped in their darkness.

The Bupa Blog Awards

What exactly is a Blog Award I hear you ask? I think that winning something like this is very personal, and means something very different to each of the bloggers chosen for an award. I am not a fan of the word ‘winner’ to be honest, obviously it needs to be used in this context! I am also not a fan of the cliche, so it is somewhat difficult to articulate myself on this topic .. I will give it a go though! Everyone is a winner when you blog from the heart! (Sorry, couldn’t help myself!)
