The “Bite Sized Education” Series


In part one of this week’s topic about postpartum depression we discuss the statistics of postpartum depression and anxiety and the warning signs that may indicate you are struggling with this extremely common diagnosis. We share red flags, explain the science behind why perinatal mood disorders are so prevalent, and offer resources if you need support. 


Our amazing listeners also wrote in and in this episode we will answer the following question:

Dear Mom Genes,

I have struggled with being overwhelmed, exhausted, and feeling stuck in my new phase as a mom with two young children. I feel like the world is passing me by and each day I am just trying to survive. I want to learn to thrive, but the things that will make me feel alive are the self care hobbies (I miss my book club), activities (I miss yoga), and behaviors (I just want to sleep and cook a decent meal!) just don’t feel feasible. How can I practice self care even while I am struggling with what is probably postpartum depression? Love, Exhausted Mama
