We are getting into some good stuff today about attachment and bonding in new parenthood. We are talking again with Dr. Juli Fraga about what all of this means and what it means for you and your baby. In particular, what might be going on for a mother experiencing a perinatal mood change.

*We will be touching on the difference between attachment and bonding.

*What can happen in new parenthood when a mother or father is struggling.

*We touch on the ever present shame and guilt.

*Getting support for your perinatal mood change can support good bonding and attachment.
