A very real loss of reality
Postpartum Psychosis is a rare but very real illness that affects approximately 1 to 2 out of every 1,000 postpartum people. We don’t talk about it as much as other postpartum mood disorders like depression and anxiety, and perhaps because of the extreme stigma these moms experience as a result.
In this episode, we break down what exactly is postpartum psychosis, who is most likely to be affected, and how to get help.
We also talk to Eve Canavan, recipient of the British Empire Medal, Blogger, and Coordinator of the UK Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week for The Perinatal Mental Health Partnership, about her own powerful experience as a postpartum psychosis survivor.
