THE EXPOSÉ | Episode 40 | “Mommy Blues Aren’t A Myth”

Postpartum depression is a topic people are slowly getting more comfortable talking about. We’ve seen celebrities such as Brooke Shields and Chrissy Teigen come out and share their experiences with postpartum depression. This week we discuss postpartum depression, the pressures that women face before, during and after pregnancy, as well as self-care, all in one episode.

This week Kat and Esther are missing in action but we have our community editor, Saffiya Mohamed, and Editorial Fellow, Ariana Munsamy, joining Laila and special guest, Doula Hira Khan, founder of BirthKeeper, providing prenatal services and education to the global Muslim community.
