Postpartum Depression & Anxiety: free webinar Wednesday

Postpartum Depression & Anxiety: More than the Blues

This free webinar benefits expecting and new parents, those who love them (families and friends) or work with them (professionals). Did you know that more than 12% of women experience significant mood disorders during the year following birth, yet only a small % ever seek treatment?

Isis Parenting is sponsoring this free event on Wed. May 25, I'm moderating the chat, and the two expert presenters are Katherine Stone, advocate and founder of Postpartum Progress, and Dr. Marlene Freeman, Director of Clinical Services in the Perinatal & Reproductive Psychiatry Clinical Research Program at Massachusetts General Hospital and an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

Understand what mood changes are more than baby blues and symptoms other than depression during the entire first year after birth. Postpartum anxiety, OCD and now more understood, PTSD from birth experience, are almost as common as PPD.

Even if you cannot attend live, please register now and receive the link for on-demand viewing at any time after the event. You may share this link with any relevant email lists or groups - it's free for all to benefit from. Click here:
