About This Show
With host, Dr. Kat, we talk with moms, experts and advocates about the emotional challenges that mothers and families deal with while going through infertility, pregnancy, loss and postpartum. Did you know that about 20% of moms (1 in 5!) will experience a significant and sometimes devastating change to their mental wellbeing, such as postpartum depression or postpartum anxiety? They don’t want to feel bad, but they do. We get real. We get honest. We put on our stigma crushing boots and address the realities of the transition to motherhood, while offering hope, healing and resources for help. Please find more information at www.momandmind.com.
