On Postpartum Depression

By Ethan Goffman

On Postpartum Depression

Seven and a half billion human beings
on this Earth
and counting, and counting, and counting, and counting.
Each birth a miraculous suffering.

I still suffer postpartum depression from my own birth.

Each baby born will suffer horribly, and at some point, die.

My question to mothers without postpartum depression:
what is wrong with you?

Perhaps you need to see a psychiatrist!
