“Postpartum Depression for Dummies”

Kinshasha talked with Dr. Shoshanna Bennett about her new book, “Postpartum Depression for Dummies”.

Clinical depression affects 15-20% of pregnant women, sometimes hitting so hard that the moms-to-be attempt suicide.

The new mother of eight in LA needs regular mental health assessment. Prenatal and postpartum depression is a hidden illness with potential grave consequences.
