Mom Draws Heart On Her Child’s Hand Every Day, For A Really Special Reason

It was when her readers learned why she had recently drawn a heart on his hand that they couldn’t help but feel moved.

Having battled mental health herself, Liz has openly blogged about postpartum depression, otherwise known as postnatal depression, which she dealt with after giving birth to her third child.

In her blogs, she described the symptoms and severity of her condition, and often stressed the integrity of National Postpartum Depression Awareness Month, as well as the importance of keeping the conversation about this issue going.
