In the first part of the episode, I discuss my own personal story of postpartum depression, anxiety and OCD. 

***I discuss some topics about intrusive thoughts that may be sensitive for some listeners***

In the second part of this episode, I discuss some of the basics of Maternal Mental Health (MMH) diagnosis, which include Depression, Anxiety, Panic, OCD, PTSD, Bipolar and Psychosis. We mention pregnancy loss, paternal depression and post adoption depression as well. While this is not an exhaustive list of what can be challenging during the reproductive years, its a good reference for many of the topics that we will discuss in future episodes.

I'm so glad you're hear with us, being a part of learning, hope, healing and change for moms and families who need to know that they are not alone!
