*Sensitive Content, 17:45-20:45*
Coretta shares her personal story of postpartum depression, how it impacted her first months of motherhood. As she was coming out of the heaviness of PPD, she realized that the women of color in her community in Ohio did not have enough resources. So, she went to work. You will hear how passionate and driven she is to help mothers and women of color.
She talks about:
- Her experience through Postpartum Depression, worry, intrusive thoughts, colic and exhaustion
-How her experience impacted new motherhood
-The issues that she has seen in cultures and communities that make it difficult for women of color to get help.
-How to support mothers
