Pregnancy is joyful, scary, beautiful, and hard work. As is postpartum. As is motherhood.
Whenever hormonal imbalances and a lack of support are present, depression and anxiety will be the natural result. It is so important that we don’t limit this to the postpartum period. The earlier we are supported, the faster we are able to make our way to the other side.
In today’s episode, we’re talking to Angela Mancini, a Doula, Licensed Therapist, and Perinatal Mood Disorder Specialist.
As a professional who experienced dark days of depression herself, she is here to speak on the stigma as well as the path forward.
