Intense mood swings, exhaustion, sadness, and anger are all signs that something is off during a mother’s postpartum phase, but when does one draw the line and ask for help? Or how does a new mom get help in the first place? Jess and I chat about these questions and more in a candid conversation about postpartum depression, infertility, miscarriage, and the state of our health care system in the United States.
There’s more to postpartum than the blissful moments’ everyone expects you to feel, this is a real story of a new mom’s strength and vulnerability.
