STOUGHTON, Mass. Ariana Sutton, a dancer and mother of three whose husband is a Massachusetts police officer, took her own life May 31 after giving birth to twins. Her family is asking for community support to raise awareness of postpartum depression.

Catherine Sutton, Ariana’s sister-in-law, said the family wants to make sure mothers aren’t ashamed to look after their own mental health.

“It’s so important that you ask for help,” she said. “If another family is able to avoid what we’re going through right now, our story is worth sharing.”

The twins, born a month early, are in the neonatal intensive care unit at Newton-Wellesley Hospital, where they are expected to remain until their official due date at the end of the month.
