Postpartum Depression is not the only Maternal Mental Illness that exists.
Ten years ago I suffered from Postpartum Psychosis. Five years ago, I was an Advocate for mothers who needed education in raising their new baby, which included breastfeeding & maternal mental health services in Philadelphia. I am still in the public health field while also writing/blogging on Maternal Mental Health in Women. My degree is in psychology, and my goal is to break the mental illness stigma in the community by educating people on the negative effects on poor mental health.
