Urban Curandera shared Postpartum Progress's post.People, this is a problem. ...
July is Minority Mental Health Month (thanks, NAMI!), and Jasmine Banks is leading us in a discussion of what that means for mothers of color experiencing postpartum mood and anxiety disorders.
Today she's talking about lack of exposure and access, which are important terms to learn in this discussion.
Q: What suggestions do you have for improving exposure and access for our Warrior Moms of color? -JH

Urban Curandera shared Postpartum Progress's post.38 percent?!!!!!! Holy fuck y'all we need to get all over this and support our peeps better ...
"Studies show that new mothers of color have rates of postpartum depression soaring close to 38% compared with the 13 – 19% rate for all new mothers (Keefe, Brownstein-Evans, & Rouland Polmateer, 2016)."
"Community-based Support Services: Providers should develop partnerships to establish local community-based services and/or peer-support groups in community centers, churches, and schools to increase awareness and dispel the myths and stigma about mental illness."
We're here for you. All of you. -JH

Women shouldn't be afraid to talk about miscarriages.

Lin CyrusMy miscarriage? No one. My stillbirth? Everyone. I'm not sure which was easier. They were both hell. It's horrifying how isolating it feels.
Steph JacksonI'd talk to anyone who wanted to hear about it. I had one at 9 weeks. I didn't feel any shame around it, for whatever reason, but that's no judgement on anyone who does. I grieved, but had this deep down feeling that it was okay.
Ever since I was little, I wanted a water birth. Due to extensive uterine surgery, I had to schedule surgical births for both my deliveries at 38 weeks. During the subsequent miscarriage, as I was feeling the waves of pain, at one point I realized that those were labor pains. I was getting to experience some semblance of labor, and I am grateful for that.
Carrie SmithAnyone who would listen without getting all weird. Mostly all they can say is I'm sorry or try to compare your situation to whatever experience they know. You know they are trying to help but it doesn't.
PJ King BarnettMy husband both times
Carolyn DeRouen LambethThen You & My sister who had also had a miscarriage.
Now anyone I know that has experienced that loss
Maureen KnightThis first one? No one.
The second one? Anyone I could. Mostly Shannon.
Vanessa GagneMy husband. He was the best! And my cousin too. I hope we
dissolve the taboo sooner rather than later.
