Postpartum and Parenting
Nothing quite compares to the joyous yet utterly difficult evolution of becoming a parent. While society teases about how difficult parenting is, it hardly provides the support that new mothers and families need as they navigate the postpartum period. Childbirth is a physically astounding feat whether labor is natural or surgical, the birth of a child takes a tremendous toll on women and developing families. Combine physical recovery with caring for a new infant without any emotional or practical support and women are destined to feel isolated and develop mental health conditions.
