Supporting your friend suffering from a PMAD

The Motherhood Center of New York’s own Paige Bellenbaum joins Deb Flashenberg for the The Prenatal Yoga Center's blog series Yoga | Birth | Babies.

“Have you ever had a friend or family member you suspected was suffering from a Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder and just didn’t know if or how to approach them? With more than 20% of new parents suffering from Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders it is important to have the tools and language to help.

In this episode of Yoga | Birth | Babies, I welcome back licensed social worker and program director of the Motherhood Center, Paige Bellenbaum. Paige discusses how to approach a person you suspect may be suffering from Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders. She offers a way to gently converse with the parent without making them feel probed or awkward. This is a very important episode for birth workers and those supporting a new parent.”
