Here's a great post from PostpartumProgress.com with ideas for moms who need some child care resources. Taking a break can be so critical for moms going through PPD.
A mother may be in crisis for all sorts of reasons, whether it’s postpartum depression, a debilitating illness, economic turmoil, problems of addiction or abuse, or something else. Whatever the reason, it’s so important for them to feel they have a safe place for their children to go, whether it’s for a few hours or a few days. For many of these women, lack of childcare is a major barrier to getting help.
Take a look at this list and let us know what other ideas you might suggest.
