Coping with Postpartum Depression
Frankie Powell, Patient Care Supervisor of Labor & Delivery at Homestead Hospital, explains postpartum depression doesn’t go away. “There’s a stigma on it. One in five women suffer from postpartum depression, or a postpartum maternal mental illness, and that is something that we need to make sure that people know and women know”.
She also highlights it is not something to be ashamed of, and it doesn’t go away on its own. The right thing to do is seeking medical help, counseling.
