Real Talk: Dealing with Pregnancy Boredom

If you are feeling bored with your pregnancy, do not feel bad; you are not the only one who has felt this way.

Reconnecting with Your Partner After Postpartum Depression

Even after you’ve recovered from PPD, your foundation may be shaky....

Maternal Mental Health Screening: What I Wished I’d Had

When I was pregnant back in 1997, I wish my doctor had told me I might be at risk for postpartum depression. Her words wouldn’t have alarmed me. They would have prompted me to get treatment when the darkness did indeed hit. During my six-week postpartum checkup when I was at my worst, I wish my OB/GYN had handed me a mental health screening and explained the difference between the “blues” and depression. Perhaps I would have lied on the screening, although I doubt it. At the time I was desper...
