“They cut your body and take out an important part of you. After that you have sentenced to live for sheltering that piece of gift of you.” Mobina says. I was 23 , she was 19 , we got married and soonly Mobina got pregnant .pregnancy was a new episode that was like a prelude to a newer ,more complicated and exciting season. after the birth of our daughter ,mobina suffered of Postpartum Depression . Being a mother with this problem ,that was not what we expected and changed our situation to other level .more challenging,hard, joyful,colorful,satysfynig ,depressed.it was kind of paradoxical situation . As Mobina says: it is like being a prisoner in heaven.
