    What a great idea! In a hospital, one goes to Labor and Delivery to give birth, NOT Orthopedics. Where is the logic that a mom suffering from post-partum depression (PPD) be admitted to a Psychiatric Unit, where the staff is typically not equipped to care for this very delicate and unique disorder?

Where she can receive therapy for her condition and is supported to pump her breasts, spend time with her baby and family, and overcome the overwhelming and debilitating feelings that caused her PPD.

    Have you experienced feelings of sadness, fear and anger that often accompany the transitions into motherhood?
