Workshop Title: Brave New Mom - Postpartum Mental Health in the 2020s
Workshop Description: Being a new mom is more complex than ever, and "What to Expect While You’re Expecting" only scratches the surface of the emotional roller-coaster of new parenthood. This workshop will talk through the new world into which birthing people are bringing babies, including new mental health concerns and how to address them. We’ll talk about how parenthood has changed and how we need to adapt our family systems perspectives in order to best support new moms and families.
1) Participants will learn and understand the biggest mental health struggles for birthing people in the perinatal period.
2) Participants will gain perspectives on addressing mental health concerns for new moms and their partners/family members.
