Kid Up And Go: Finding your Mom Tribe
Over the past few weeks, you’ve learned about perinatal mood and anxiety factors, how to find support, and how to support a friend or partner. This week I wanted to speak to the importance of social support, and specifically, how essential it is to connect with other moms and parents with kids of the same age. There is incredible value in this. Indeed, countless studies have shown that lack of social support during pregnancy and the postpartum period puts women at higher risk for developing a perinatal mood or anxiety disorder (PMAD).
