Maternal mental health does not get the recognition it deserve. Mental health in general needs more recognition.
Moving off my soap box for just a second... I want to give you some FACTS about maternal mental health issues.
1 in 5 women will suffer from a maternal mental health disorder
1 in 10 men will develop a perinatal mood disorder have childbirth
Less than 15% of women we seek treatment for their maternal mental health disorder
600,000 women in the US suffer from a maternal mental health disorder in the U.S. every year
1 in 7 women will develop depression during pregnancy
Let's be real ... these statistics are SCARY!
