Episode 19: When Love Feels Heavy with N'tima Preusser


When Love Feels Heavy by N’tima Preusser is still, by far, the most well-read essay on Coffee + Crumbs. Today, N’tima shares more about her postpartum mental health journey, subtle signs that you may be struggling with depression or anxiety, and some ideas of what to do if you are. This is one of our most authentic, touching episodes yet; a breath of fresh air for any mama in the trenches of infant life.
