Postpartum depression is a cause very near and dear to me. Following the birth of my 1st baby, I experienced Postpartum depression and anxiety. I was so anxious, I didn't want to leave my house for weeks. I was constantly feeling that I was a horrible mother, that I was incapable of being a mom, extreme guilt, sadness, and fears. It wasn't easy, but I reached out for help and got better. I have since learned so much about Perinatal mood disorders and as a therapist, have become certified as a specialist in this work. But did you know that 1 in 7 women will experience this following the birth of a child? I had knowledge and resources to get help, but the truth is so many other women don't have the resources to get help. There is poor screening and intervention, but suicide is one of the leading causes of death in Postpartum women. This is so preventable. I'll be walking for Postpartum depression awareness on September 8th. If you are able to join me, please do! If you are able to donate to raise money for this cause, it's appreciated.
