1 in 5 women will experience a pregnancy/postpartum mood and anxiety disorder. For women of color the number is closer to 1 in 3. For men and partners the number is 1 in 10. This is higher than any other pregnancy and postpartum complication and not treated with the same urgency. PMAD’s (postpartum mood and anxiety disorders) are 100% treatable. Without treatment PMAD's can go on for years and worsen. If you are or a loved one are struggling please get connected to support as soon as possible. You are not alone, you are enough and things will get better.
