Host Pat Skerrett talks with Kara Zivin, a physician, research scientist, and professor of psychiatry and of obstetrics and gynecology. She wrote a moving and informative First Opinion, "Meghan Markle gave voice to the despair I once felt during pregnancy," soon after Oprah Winfrey's interview with the Duchess of Sussex. In their conversation, Kara talks about her own struggles, as well as the balancing act between protecting one's privacy and advocating for changes in policy and stigma.
A caution to listeners: This episode includes discussions of suicide during pregnancy.
