#Repost @fit_4_mom with @get_repost ・・・ Approximately 70%-80% of women will develop the “baby blues” after childbirth. An estimated 10%-20% will experience clinical postpartum depression. That’s 1 in 7... Of those, 60% also displayed signs of an anxiety disorder. And 50% showed signs during pregnancy. About 1-2 women out of 1,000 will experience postpartum psychosis. Postpartum OCD occurs in about 3-5% of childbearing women. If you or a friend has experienced a postpartum disorder such as postpartum depression, anxiety, OCD, or psychosis, you are NOT ALONE. We need to continue to speak up to end the stigma around maternal mental health. Support two women and moms — @sarahmoshman, a filmmaker, mom, #FIT4MOM member, and fierce advocate for women and girls, and comedian and advocate @angelinaspicer as they create a comedic yet informative film on motherhood, specially shining a light on postpartum depression and anxiety // Let’s join the conversation and these amazing women by backing their Kickstarter (LINK IN BIO) If you need more support talking through intrusive or suicidal thoughts, call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255) Maternal mental health disorders are never a mom’s fault, are never a “weakness” or “flaw,” and are nothing to be ashamed of. Modern day mamas are beginning to more openly discuss postpartum disorders, like postpartum depression, anxiety, and psychosis, but we still have work to do. *These postpartum statistics are based on the US population and shared by APA, John Hopkins, Women’s Health, & American Pregnancy
