Wow. Two posts today, and I still managed to miss my Blogging for ACT post.
I wonder how long I can play this “I have a new baby!” card?
Anyhow, I don’t have time right now to post anything more insightful or lengthy, but I wanted to point out that post-partum depression effects more women than I had previously realized, and there are probably many more women who go undiagnosed.
If you get a moment, check out the MOTHERS Act Bill, which seeks to increase education, awareness, provide support for women suffering from PPD. If it is something you wish to throw your support behind, please contact your Senator and ask them to support this bill.
