Episode 39: It’s OK to Not be OK: Breaking the Stigma on Maternal Mental Health

I am so honored to speak to Dr. Pooja Lakshmin (@womensmentalhealthdoc on Instagram. She is a Perinatal Psychiatrist and contributor for the NY Times.

We speak about “Mom martyr mode,” Postpartum Depression, Postpartum Anxiety, and how to know when you need to talk to someone about your mental health.

Our hope is to break the stigma surrounding maternal mental health. Understanding things are not okay take strength. Getting help takes strength. We want to normalize therapy and the medications and diagnosis of postpartum anxiety and depression.

Tune in to hear me answer these questions.

If you have a question you want answered on the podcast, call 954 526 2641 to leave a message.
