Promoting mental health for parents and their children

I had so many risk factors for postpartum depression that it would have been a miracle if I hadn’t gotten sick. The problem is that no one ever told me that. I was never screened for a maternal mental illness and I suffered because of it. Now I want to make sure that every medical professional screens every mom every time they can.

Risk factors for postpartum depression aren't being shared with pregnant women and their families. Pregnant women and new moms are not being screened and not getting the help they need. This is the information that pregnant women and new moms need.
