When a family member announces a pregnancy, it's usually a joyful occasion. But for one 17-year-old girl, her older sister's announcement brought back painful memories and left her in tears. 😢💔 Her sister, Beth, had previously suffered severe postpartum depression after the birth of her first child, Leo. This left the young girl to care for her newborn nephew while dealing with her sister's depression. Now, with the news of a second baby on the way, she fears history may repeat itself. But are her fears justified? 🤔
