May is Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month! #MomsMatter

PPD Resources- #MomsMatter- Part 3

This month is Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month and we are recognizing that #MomsMatter!  And not only do moms matter, but their health and overall wellbeing matters too!  Which is why we are addressing the very difficult topic and conversation about Perinatal Mood Disorders which some may know as Postpartum Depression or PPD.

In a community of doulas, childbirth educators, sleep coaches, nurses, midwives, doctors, pediatricians, and real moms we are having real conversations that need to become a little more common, less taboo, so that we can take care of each other as needed.

I’m excited to continue the conversation  with Evelyn Bussell of Felicity Birthing   on the resources available for  Perinatal Mood Disorders, also known as Postpartum Depression or PPD.   In our conversation we share local and national strategies for families to reach out to to help put a plan of action in  place for this #FourthTrimester.

If you or someone you know is experiencing any symptoms of any Perinatal Mood Disorders please reach out for support here.
