KEY POINTS

On ‘What’s Trending’, hosts Jessica Reyes, Patricia Wu and guest CEO and founder of Birthify Dawn Thompson discuss how postpartum psychosis is a rare but serious mental health condition that can affect some women after childbirth.

Postpartum Psychosis is Serious

This condition involves disconnection from reality, including hallucinations and delusions. It requires immediate medical attention, similar to any other health emergency.

Signs to Watch For

Sudden mania (over-exuberance and disconnected thinking), severe depression, or talking about things that don’t make sense are potential warning signs.

Empathy is Key

While media often focuses on the most extreme cases, it’s important to remember women with this condition are not themselves and deserve understanding and support.
