“When it comes to my recovery, my mother-in-law played a pivotal role. Her involvement and understanding were instrumental in helping me navigate those difficult moments. There were moments where I felt overwhelmed by guilt, but a visit from her would brighten even the darkest days. My experience highlights the importance of having a strong support system, and how cultural understanding can play a significant role in the recovery from postpartum depression.” Kimberly Jolasun, Villie Founder & CEO
