Following the death of a local police officer’s wife, family and friends in Massachusetts are attempting to raise awareness about postpartum depression.
Ariana Sutton, of Norton, committed herself on May 31, nine days after giving birth to twins.
According to her obituary, the 36-year-old, whose greatest delight was spending time with her family, had three kids with Easton police officer Tyler Sutton.
Two weeks ago, they were calling him and saying, ‘Congratulations,’ and putting cards together for him, police Chief Keith Boone said. They are now planning for a funeral.
Jason Sutton, her husband’s brother, characterized Ariana as an extremely patient, kind human being.
Ariana desired these kids so badly, he said of the twins, who arrived a month early. She lived in order to be a mother.
The births of Everly Irene and Rowan Stephen, according to a GoFundMe campaign set up on the family’s behalf, brought unexpected challenges for the vibrant and loving mother, putting an enormous strain on Ariana’s mental health.
Despite her constant attempts to seek help, the burden of postpartum depression became too much to bear, stated one note.
Their hearts are aching as they manage life without Ariana, a precious member of their family, Ariana’s sister-in-law Kiley Sutton said on Facebook on Monday.
Tyler, according to Boone, has a long road ahead of him and has requested people to educate themselves on the effects of postpartum depression (PPD).
It’s so important that one ask for help, said Catherine Sutton, sister-in-law, in an interview. It’s worth it to share their story if it helps another family escape what they’re going through currently.
According to the National Institute of Health, one in every seven women has PPD after giving birth. Unlike baby blues, which usually pass after a few weeks, this kind of melancholy tends to last longer and seriously hampers women’s ability to return to normal function.
According to the Office on Women’s Health, some women don’t tell anyone about their symptoms, and new moms may feel embarrassed, ashamed, or guilty about feeling depressed after giving birth. Furthermore, they may be concerned that they will be perceived as bad mothers.
Ariana and her sister co-owned Starline Academy for the Performing Arts in Stoughton for the last eight years, where she worked for five years before becoming an owner, according to her obituary. She also belonged to the Greater Brockton Dance Teachers Association.
Ariana flourished at inspiring kids with the joys of dance, according to her obituary.
As of Tuesday, more than $263,000 had been donated for the family via GoFundMe.
Her twins are presently being cared for in the neonatal critical care unit at Newton-Wellesley Hospital in Newton, where they will likely stay until the end of the month.
Her spouse and her three kids, Melody Ki, 4, and twins Everly and Rowan, survive her.
