Welcoming a child into your family is supposed to be one of the most beautiful and exciting times of your life. Yet for many people this simply isn’t the case. Stigma is one of the biggest reasons why pregnant and postpartum persons don’t receive the treatment they need. The brave and vulnerable members of our Speakers Bureau are dedicated to sharing their stories of depression, anxiety, trauma, loss, bias and racism during the prenatal and postpartum periods in order to break down this stigma and encourage those who are suffering to seek help. Listen to their stories.
