Postpartum anxiety is an epidemic among American mothers. Why does it so often go undiagnosed?
from TIME Magazine
Anxiety is a silent epidemic among American mothers. It is debilitating, but normalized and even socially sanctioned. We’ve come to confuse fear with love, and the pursuit of zero risk with responsible parenting. There is no established definition of post-partum anxiety, and no category for it in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. In most medical literature, it either does not exist or is a mere symptom of postpartum depression.
