Preemie Post Partum Depression

I have had a few friends in the past year have PPD after delivering their child and saw first hand how hard it was for them.  They obviously didn’t see it coming, nor could they turn off a switch to make it stop.  For preemie parents, then you add the stress of the NICU on top of that, and WOW, not a good combination!
