Last week I had to opportunity to attend a class presented by Susannah Baldwin of Bay Laurel Center of Psychotherapy on Postpartum Mood Disorders. I learned a lot about different types of mood disorders, warning signs, and resources for help. Did you know that PPD can start during pregnancy, not just after a mother gives birth?
One great resource I learned about was a movie that is coming to the Upstate on Thursday, December 1. The movie, Dark Side of the Full Moon, explores maternal mental health, which is not a topic that is widely discussed with pregnant or new mothers. We need to know more so we can help all the mothers in our lives.
Here is the trailer:
If you are pregnant, are a new mother, or if you know a new or pregnant mother, please make plans to attend this one night only showing. It is sure to open your eyes and help equip you to help yourself or those you care about.
