Why am is Pamm so crazy committed? Because her daughter suffered with prenatal and postpartum anxiety and depression with all four of her children. It would creep up on her during the very early morning hours. During the last trimester, her daughter would pace, cry and worry with very intense anxiety. Finally, out of a sense of frustration and hopelessness for her, Pamm had to do something different. Together with her daughter, they started a journey of recovery by connecting with professionals throughout the state, looking for any assistance they could find.
