We were both ecstatic to be expecting twins. She was so joyful, I can’t even begin to convey it.
Ariana Sutton, who was 36 at the time, gave birth to a healthy baby girl in 2018. Since this was the couple’s first kid, the family was ecstatic to receive him or her. Ariana, however, experienced postpartum depression, which many new mothers go through, even though everyone thought that their home and their life would be filled only with happiness.
- Every tenth woman who gives birth is affected by this disorder, which is significantly more common than one may think.
- A few years later, Ariana became pregnant once more, but this time it was twins.
- In order to support Tyler in raising awareness of postpartum depression, the family set up a GoFundMe campaign.

Before having Melody, it wasn’t apparent that Ariana had any mental health problems, according to Ariana’s husband Tyler Sutton, a Massachusetts police officer. However, when Melody was born, it became clear that Ariana had difficulties.
We were both mostly in the dark because we didn’t know a lot about it. Tyler clarified. “One morning when I got home, I simply couldn’t identify the person sitting in front of me. We then drove my kid to the hospital after dropping her off with her grandmother. After two hospital stays, Ariana was able to get better with some medication and care. Those who knew her described her as “warm” and “upbeat.” She was a joyful mother and dancing instructor.
A few years later, Ariana became pregnant once more, but this time it was twins.
On May 23, 2023, the babies were born, and this time the family was prepared to offer Ariana the most support possible because they already knew that she might relapse into postnatal depression. “We devised a plan when we eventually became pregnant with the twins. We assembled a team,” Tyler said.
“What happened this time happened within a couple of days of what happened to her over the course of a few weeks,” he said. We had a plan in place, but we had no way of knowing that something this swift and unexpected would happen. Ariana committed herself soon after giving birth to her twins Everly Irene and Rowan Stephen because her symptoms worsened and appeared earlier than they have in the past.
Devastated Tyler said, “It takes a very strong person to ask for help.” “If we could just normalize asking for help, rather than [women] feeling ashamed for needing assistance, because this is a real issue. It is extremely powerful, deadly, and should not be faced alone since it is so very real.
In order to support Tyler in raising awareness of postpartum depression, the family set up a GoFundMe campaign.
Please spread the word about this campaign to your contacts in order to increase awareness of postpartum depression and the value of prenatal and postpartum mental health care. We can work to stop future families from going through the same tragedies by creating a supportive community,” the page stated.
Additionally, Tyler stated that he wants to improve the way healthcare professionals discuss postpartum depression with prospective parents.
If I could do one thing right away, he said, it would be to ask the medical profession to alter their routine somewhat and add one more item to their list of things to do when they see patients.
We are devastated by the untimely death of a young mother of three children. For his three children, who will grow up without a mother’s love, we pray that Tyler maintains his fortitude.
