*WARNING LONG POST BUT MUST BE SAID***** About Today! I meet with one of the biggest health care providers in the US today. A lack of knowledge will damage any and all things that are progress. Even though they are a world known healthcare provider they are clueless to what is needed for Women who experience or will experience Postpartum Depression. There protocol is to send them to Behavioral Medicine ( a psychiatrist ) this is exactly why women suffer in silence and don't get the help they need. Medicine is not always the cure. Talking,listening, are key components to the recovery process.
Start talking dammit!!!!
I sat with this multi-million dollar company and they were clueless as to what women's health really needs to consist of when it comes to new moms. Yes it is important for the Moms to know how to properly care for their infant child. But it also just as important that the mom be Mentally Healthy as well..... Fast forward As I wrapped up my meeting.... I was feeling very frustrated and yet still determined that the healthcare system has to initiate change. I initially saw this meeting as an opportunity to connect and make some huge changes but ended thinking what a bunch of idiots. You know there is a need but you don't have enough interest to do something real about it. I will say that I left some things on their mind because later this afternoon they emailed to schedule another meeting with me next week.
Change is What you have to fight for especially when people have an automatic stigma on something. Postpartum Depression Is Real..... AGAIN I SAY POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION IS REAL... Days like this seem darkest for me on this road to #breakthestigma and Getting People Talking and Helping To Stop this vicious cycle of Silence But I've Learned To Dance Until The Storm Passes And I'm Not Going To Stop
