Why am I feeling so bad? Women suffer from depression for a variety of reasons. Becoming a mother often triggers depression, as do other developmental stages, life events, and trauma. Today, Dr. Erika Bocknek, from the Michigan-based Relationship Institute, will join Dr. Annie, to discuss the causes, and warning signs of post-natal baby-blues and postpartum depression, as well as depression in later life stages. Dr. Annie and Dr. Bocknek will talk about the effects that depression can have on women and their children.  Beth Blake will be moderating the discussion.
