Having a baby can be one of the most amazing experiences of a woman’s life but it can also be an emotional rollercoaster. “Baby blues” are normal within the first two weeks of giving birth, but for some those blues can turn into something more serious. Roughly 15% of women will suffer from postpartum depression after having a baby. This is a condition where a mother can find herself in a place of having a lack of desire to care for herself and her baby. The severity and frequency can vary pregnancy to pregnancy, but the need for support and help for the mom is always the same. Come listen to Heather Shuler who suffered from postpartum depression after the births of each of her sons, find out how she recognized it, how she got the help she needed, and what advice she has for any mom going through the same thing.
