Mama Story – Gayle
In honor of Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month, I’m sharing Gayle’s story of perinatal mood disorders. Gayle is a doula and student midwife, and has had extensive training in perinatal mood disorders. See more here.
Despite all her training, after her third birthing experience, Gayle suffered from postpartum depression and anxiety. She discusses how she felt, what triggered her symptoms, and her road to recovery.
