Help for Postpartum Depression and Anxiety

April 3, 2011 Holly Gray

katherine-stoneKatherine Stone suffered from postpartum OCD after the birth of her first child. With treatment, she made a full recovery and decided to provide pregnant women and new mothers with support and help for postpartum depression and anxiety through her blog, Postpartum Progress. Today, it's the most widely read blog on perinatal mental illness.

On this week's edition of the HealthyPlace Mental Health Radio Show, Katherine shares her thoughts on postpartum psychiatric disorders, how a lack of information can keep women from getting help for postpartum depression and anxiety, and her assurances that recovery is possible.
