Postpartum mood disorders are increasingly prevalent with, 1 out of 9 women experiencing it. This depression can begin during pregnancy, soon after birth or even six months postpartum. It’s caused from shifting hormones, lack of sleep, and can be compacted with all sorts of risk factors. Trauma during childbirth is one, as well as unplanned pregnancy, history of depression, low income, single parenting, etc. It is a huge issue and one that’s not talked about.
It has been one of my passions since experiencing postpartum depression myself to help other women make a plan. My postpartum plan is newly updated with resources and a visualization. Feel free to reach out for a copy for yourself.
PS: Placenta Encapsulation can help ward off postpartum depression. Its a low cost and high reward tool to try.
