Childbirth Caused Rage, Depression: Podcast Interview Examines Mental Health & Having A Baby

(4-13-22) Dr. Nicole Washington and my good friend and nationally recognized mental health advocate, Gabe Howard, recently interviewed Jessica Ekhoff, on his popular podcast, INSIDE BIPOLAR as heard on Healthline Media podcast.

I posted a blog last year about Jessica’s book, Super Sad Unicorn: A Memoir of Mania, that describes her experiences after giving birth to her first child. I believe this is an important topic.

Ekhoff describes her experience with postpartum-onset bipolar disorder, mania, and psychosis, rare – and even more rarely discussed – mental health complications of having a baby.

Thanks Gabe for discussing this important topic on your show and sharing it with me. Here’s the interview:
