After nine long months of pregnancy, the day that you get to meet your new sweet baby is finally here! This special time is supposed to be filled with feelings of pure joy and unconditional love for your new child. What many people don’t realize is that one in five new mothers suffer silently from Postpartum Mood & Anxiety Disorders like Postpartum Depression (PPD) and Anxiety, making it the number one birth complication to date.
