Depression During Pregnancy

In keeping with the theme 'round these here parts lately:
Calm down. Take a few deep breaths and look around. Women are doing it everywhere, all the time. And surviving. Thriving, even! Here’s a little tip from me to you, something I have thought about several times lo these past pregnant months:
