Birth planning is very important. Postpartum planning is essential. Arianna Taboada talks about so much, including some of the reasons we need this kind of support in the US specifically or places where maternity leave is not well supported.

More specifically, these plans are very supportive for mothers who have any history or risk of perinatal mental health challenge, such as postpartum depression or postpartum anxiety.

We touch on:

What is a postpartum plan and why do we need it?

What's in a postpartum plan and what should be on there?

"Who's your crew?" getting the support of others.

This is the resource that Arianna discussed...
