Postpartum depression is one of those mental health issues that many women experience but don’ t talk about. Thankfully, awareness is being created and more women are seeking help.
After Sandra Igwe had her baby girl, she started to get anxious about if she was raising her right. She soon met another new mum who was suffering from anxiety. The similarity of their cases struck Sandra because they both found it difficult to talk about it to anyone.
That motivated Sandra to create the MotherhoodGroup, a support network where black mothers can speak about the issues they are facing.
In the group, mothers are able to discuss all aspects of motherhood, including anxiety and depression among other things, without being judged.
