I was happy when Gwyneth Paltrow recently shared in an interview that she had postpartum depression (PPD) after the birth of her second child, Moses. That doesn’t sound good, so let me explain. Of course I am not glad that she went through PPD, but I AM pleased that she is speaking publicly about her experience.
At the Center for Early Relationship Support (CERS), we believe that this type of openness about PPD, whether it comes from a worldwide celebrity like Gwyneth, a friend in your book group, or a woman on Twitter, is crucial for improving the rates of mothers being identified and treated for perinatal mood disorders.
