More To Life

It used to be ignored as a trifling problem affecting moms of newborns. While the "baby blues" exist, so does postpartum depression, which is a much more serious medical condition. It can cause a lot of misery, and in extreme cases leads to postpartum psychosis. But it's treatable, and there is help, says Marcia Starkman, a nurse who runs the support group Postpartum Partnership and Angela Spiers, a Mom who suffered from postpartum. She joins Mary today to take your calls. This show contains 2 Planet Parent clips "Post Partum" and "Age of Pregnancy". Show is phone-in based, and viewers can also participate via e-mail.
