Do you know that 1 in 8 women suffer from postpartum depression (PPD), according to Postpartum Support International (PSI)?
"Maternal illness is not new. It was recognized as early as the fifth century B.C., when Hippocrates proposed that fluid from the uterus could flow to the head after childbirth and cause delirium. In the Middle Ages, mothers with such symptoms were viewed as witches or victims of witchcraft. " Belluck, P. (2014, June 15). Thinking of Ways to Harm Her. The New York Times. Retrieved from http://www.nytimes.com
