SPRINGFIELD, NJ –
Q: How are you involved with 2020 Mom?
A: Ambassador, Completed the MMH Certification class
Q: 2020 Mom’s mission is to close gaps in maternal mental health care. What’s your big hope for how 2020 Mom can fulfill this bold mission?
A: The diagnosis gap seems so large, but with 2020 Mom advocating for the OBGYNs to be the primary physician in Maternal Mental Healthcare, and also asking Pediatricians to be on the lookout during a woman’s entrance into motherhood, I think they will be able to catch more people who are struggling. I remember just wanting someone to ask me or to notice that I was not operating at my full capacity. I was not finding the joy of motherhood that everyone talked about and I didn’t want to admit it. I hope that as 2020 Mom works with healthcare teams, policy makers, insurance companies, and individuals the barriers of stigma surrounding Maternal Mental Health will break down and more women will speak up and not suffer in silence.Read More
