Carmi, IL, February 03, 2020 --( PR.com )-- In “Mommy’s Got a Tramp Stamp Stamp,” Cassie Pigg shares her own story about battling severe postpartum anxiety. We have a severe problem. No one talks about postpartum depression, but it affects 1 in 5 new mothers.1 Cassie aims to increase awareness and normalize the conversation around maternal mental health disorders.

This book is a “must-read” for new and expecting mothers. One week after publication, “Mommy’s Got a Tramp Stamp” reached the #1 spot in the Kindle store in the Two-Hour Parenting & Relationships Short Read category.

Cassie takes you through her journey with humor but still conveys the seriousness of this devastating condition. Postpartum depression can have drastic consequences if left untreated. Yet, only a small number of mothers ever actually seek treatment for their symptoms.2

“Cassie takes us through the ups and downs on her journey through motherhood in her new book. It’s a journey that will have you both laughing and crying along the way, as she tackles difficult topics from hating your partner to navigating postpartum depression and anxiety. And she does so with humor, sarcasm, and the encouragement every mom needs make it through their own motherhood journey. From tips and advice to cautionary tales, Mommy’s Got a Tramp Stamp should be at the top of every new mom’s reading list.” - Annette Schmitt, Mom Blogger - Coffee, Chaos, & Dry Shampoo

She also talks about what it’s like after having the baby and all the emotions we have all felt but are sometimes too scared to talk about. I could not stop reading!” - Ashley Coomer, Real Mom
