There is an overwhelming number of new mothers experiencing depression. This is not OK. 

In my research, we are actually seeing that this anxiety or depression is developing during pregnancy. If you are experiencing perinatal depression or anxiety it does not mean there is a problem with you. Rather, it is something that you simply need to manage. My desire is to support you in avoiding or beating prenatal depression by addressing what I like to call, ‘The Big Four’.

While there are services in place to help women deal with postpartum depression, I believe that this is too little, too late. 

Here’s to owning your emotional health in pregnancy and beyond!
