Black Maternal Mental Health Week

The birth of a child is a joyous occasion. It’s a time to celebrate bringing a new life into the world.
But for a lot of black women, after the birth, a mental downward spiral can happen. This is Black Maternal Mental Health Week. For our Medical Monday conversation, we’re looking into post-partum depression and how it can be addressed.
