Episode #06: Postpartum Depression and Anxiety

Please remember that the views on this podcast and website are not meant to be substituted for medical advice, shouldn’t be used to diagnose, treat or cure any conditions, and are intended for general information purposes only.

In this episode, we have a very honest and much needed discussion about the many struggles all moms face, including postpartum depression (PPD) and anxiety.

Join us on episode 6 as we talk openly with Gail Root, a pre and perinatal psychology and health expert, about what many moms really experience after childbirth. From the baby blues to postpartum psychosis, Gail helps us all understand what postpartum mood and anxiety disorders are, signs/symptoms to look out for, how friends/families can best help new moms, why these conditions are so under-diagnosed and under-treated, treatment options (including those suitable for breastfeeding women), and a ton of resources!  Please listen and share this episode with as many people as you can. You can help us increase the awareness of this issue and make sure moms get the support they deserve.
