Your Data Helps Us Understand: Postpartum Mental Health
30-50% of PowerMoms in the postpartum period reported blaming themselves unnecessarily when things went wrong, or feeling anxious or worried for no good reason.
Interestingly, PowerMoms in the postpartum period over the age of 35 report fewer of these symptoms than those who are younger than 35.
Thank you for helping us learn! To gain even MORE insights, we need more participation from PowerMoms like you!Join Now
