Last year I published a piece on my experience with postnatal depression. Recently, I spoke to some new mothers about PND and I was shocked to find out that some people still assume that it does not exist. Postnatal depression does exist, and it is race and culture neutral. Recognising the signs and seeking medical intervention are crucial. A mother’s mood impacts on her baby’s outcomes in life. Postnatal depression is one of the causes of infanticide. It’s serious.
