Olivia shares her story of experiencing postpartum depression during and after her pregnancies while simultaneously dealing with the stress of immigrating to the United States, food insecurity, and domestic violence within her relationship.
“I suffer from depression as a baseline so I knew I would be at high risk for PPD. I had a great support system that was also looking out for me which was super helpful.
I cut my dose in 1/2 during the 3rd trimester and went back to the regular dose after the baby was born. I could notice the difference in the decrease and was glad to be able to go back to my original dose.”
