Knowledge about Pregnancy and Postpartum Psychosis (PPP) – Who needs it?
Written by Teresa Twomey
If you love someone who may one day become pregnant – you do.
If you love someone who is pregnant or postpartum – you do.
If you may become pregnant one day – you do.
If you are pregnant or postpartum – you do.
If you or someone you love had PPP – you do.
If you are a medical professional who interacts with pregnant or postpartum women – you do.
If you are a mental health professional, advocate, or activist – you do.
If you advocate for women’s or mother’s or children’s health – you do.
If you are a first-responder – you do.
If you are a legislator – you do.
If you are a lawyer or judge – you do.
If you are below the age of ten – it can probably wait.
Although the knowledge you need depends upon which categories apply to you, often you only need to know a relatively small amount in order to prevent trauma and tragedy. We are working on raising awareness, creating materials, and assisting allies so that you can access accurate, adequate, appropriate information. Please consider supporting our efforts.
