Approximately 1 in 7 women suffer from postpartum depression after having a baby. Many more experience depression during pregnancy, postpartum anxiety, OCD, and other mood disorders. Myths surrounding maternal mental health challenges can have devastating effects on women's well-being and their identities as mothers, too often leading to shame and inadequate treatment. The brave and honest writers in this collection are breaking the silence. They show us it is possible to find your way through.
