A woman's reproductive history and previous coping abilities have a direct bearing on her mental health postpartum and her relationship with her children, particularly her infant.  Approximately 15% of women experience Post Partum Depression.  If you or someone you know may be struggling during pregnancy or the first year of their infant's life, please contact me without delay.  There are a variety of resources available, and you/they do not have to do go through this alone.
