Having a baby is a joyous event. But all too often, the pressure to focus on the joy silences the quiet and intense struggle many families face. Postpartum issues are not the occasional rare exception but rather, affects nearly 1 in 7 women.
I am a surviver of postpartum PTSD, but didn't even have words to describe it as such for years later.
My dear friend E lost her life in 2014 to postpartum issues with anxiety, depression, and possibly psychosis.
Let's stop the stigma together. The stakes are too high to stay silent. No one should feel ashamed.
DETAILS: 10am River Park, Meet at the corner of Francisco and Foster!
