The cause of PPD is unknown but it can be treated through professional medial help or as popular 'Days of our Lives' actress Lisa Rinna stated, "One day it just up and left me!" So, today we take an introspective look into the world of Post-Partem Depression, through the eyes of Ms. Cyrulewski. You don't want to miss this power-packed show!

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
We've come a long way in understanding postpartum depression but we still need to work on de-stigmatizing the illness, and raise awareness on what PPD is, and most importantly, we need to implement successful tools to identify women mostly vulnerable to PPD, so treatment can start as soon as possible.
Our guest today is Carly Snyder, M.D. , a psychiatrist in New York City with a focus and expertise in Reproductive Psychiatry.
Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart, and Ethel Lopez of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.
Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Sam, Cliff and Ethel will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person.
Joining us tonight are Exonerees, Christoper Scott and Johnnie Lindsey of Texas, who started an organization, called House of Renewed Hope that fighting for social justice for those wrongly accused and convicted.
A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commitrong. For full story: www.freetheirp6.org.

"Even though recovery is a major part of, most women just do not plan for it. It is, therefore, no coincidence that post-pregnancy disorders are the most common complication after childbirth. Thus, the well being and healthy recovery of a woman after childbirth should be just as important of a priority, as taking care of a newborn child."These words are from Valerie Lynn's book The Mommy Plan. Tonight we will discuss natural ways to care for oneself post partum. What happens when we don't and why as a cuture we really haven't/do not.
