    As a midwife and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner I have seen how women can become isolated and stressed during the childbearing years. During this time, they are extremely vulnerable to depresssion and other mental health conditions.
    We have a responsibility to educate, assess, support, and provide services to them as their disposition affects entire families and has a profound affect on the newborns’ health and development
