35. Her Story: Postpartum depression, medication, and having an only child with Jen Schwartz
"It was a fight to get out of bed and a fight to try and get better. You feel like it's going to be like this forever." Jen Schwartz joins us to talk about her journey with postpartum depression. We discuss her process from realization, to going to the doctor, to trying different medications, to finding the right therapist. We discuss shame around medication and the decision to have only one child. Jen also shares with us the work she is doing to support the 1 in 5 women who experience perinatal mood and anxiety disorders through her platform Motherhood Understood and her other leadership roles.
