do you know 5 moms? then you know someone....
1 in 5 moms will experience some form of depression, anxiety, panic, racing thoughts, OCD or post-traumatic stress disorder yet a staggering 85% of these cases go undiagnosed and untreated. in honor of Maternal Mental Health Month, we are putting the focus on this issue which is the #1 medical complication related to child bearing (and also completely treatable). in addition to our May 17 NYC meet up, we will also be sharing stories and sentiments from different voices in our community through our online platform and via social media. you can read more of those stories via the link below.
