Description or Abstract
In this audio feature, we will be thinking deeply about postpartum depression (PPD). It starts by breaking down the complicated issues surrounding PPD by looking at how it affects new mothers emotionally and how it affects society as a whole. By looking at PPD through the view of patriarchy, we break down deeply held beliefs that make it harder to understand and help. The audio then moves on to talk about options, such as treatments, therapies, and the role of medicine in lessening PPD. In conclusion, the audio feature tries to show how to help people who are suffering from postpartum depression feel understood, supported, and given all the care they need.
