Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month
May is Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month.
In an effort to help dispel the stigma behind postpartum/perinatal mood disorders I sat down with Gayle Eckey to discuss perinatal mood disorders. We discuss the “normal” feelings to expect during the postpartum, when to reach out for help, where to find support, and ways to take care of yourself during recovery.
