Welcome back, everyone! Today you’re in for a treat, because we’re talking women’s mental health with the highly educated duo, Dr. Sarah Oreck (Psychiatrist, often featured on ’The Doctors’ TV Show) and Molly Nourmand (Licenced Psychotherapist). Both of these women specialize in perinatal mental health and postpartum support, and we dive deep into the conversations of anxiety and depression, postpartum mood disorders, PTSD, birth trauma, and more. We think you’ll find this episode insightful – share it with a friend or a loved one, and help us to open the dialogue on this important issue.
