Postpartum depression in our community!
Did you know?
1 in 7 women will experience postpartum depression.
1 in 5 women will experience postpartum depression well after the 6 month mark.
1 in 3 women of COLOR will experience postpartum depression.
1 in 10 men will experience postpartum depression.
These are based only on diagnosed conditions and we all know there are so many cases that go UNdiagnosed.
So why is it that if this is so common, there is barely any awareness on such a serious and life altering disorder?
You go to the doctors, and they barely have any information or real support to give you. Some therapists aren't properly trained on how to deal with postpartum depression nor do they know that it can affect families even after 6 weeks postpartum. And the most important for me to know is that postpartum depression is more than just wanting to hurt yourself or your child. That is more so postpartum psychosis and there are so many more symptoms for postpartum depression and anxiety.
This is why it is so important for our Founder Melissa and our brand LePeir to spread awareness, do advocacy work, and adopt families who are experiencing postpartum depression and anxiety. Melissa's voice will never be silenced and she will continue to advocate for proper maternal health rights, spread awareness in our communities so ALL know what postpartum depression really is, and she will begin adopting families soon during their postpartum period.
