Lindsay is a mom who was blindsided by a situation that affects 1 in 5 women after childbirth. After the birth of her son, she struggled for 6 years through postpartum depression. She bravely stared in and co-produced a riveting documentary called When The Bough Breaks that you need to watch even if you're not a new mom.
What we chat about:
- The importance of getting a good doctor and continuing on until you find treatment that works for you.
- What postpartum depression can look like.
- How the Gerszt's preserved their marriage through it all.
- How the spouse of a woman with a perinatal mood disorder also is enduring a trial.
