Great News for Perinatal Disorders!!

I couldn’t resist posting this great news:))

More than 1 in 10 new mothers experience postpartum depression, which can last for months or even years. It can increase anxiety, guilt and self-blame.
We also know that there are often implications for the estimated 400,000 infants born each year to mothers who experience postpartum depression – poor bonding between the mother and infant can have negative effects on the child’s development and behavior.
But there is good news – this is a treatable condition and we’re working to pass a bill to get more mothers the care that they need.
The bipartisan Bringing Postpartum Depression Out of the Shadows Act of 2015, of which I am a cosponsor and strong supporter, would provide federal grants to assist states in their efforts to identify and treat maternal depression.
We want these mothers to know that they are not alone and that there is absolutely hope.
