Center Hopes To Help With Postpartum Depression

MOM THAT HIT ROCK BOTTOM BUT SURVIVED AND IS OPENING A CENTER TO HELP OTHER MOMS THIS IS MY SON, MAX WITH MY DAUGHTER, ELLA? PAGE FEELS LUCKY SHE CAN LOOK AT HER FAMILY WITH LOVE

WHEN SHE WAS PREGNANT WITH MAX, SHE FELT ANXIOUS AND KEPT THINKING SOMETHING WAS WRONG AND WHEN HE WAS BORN AND PLACED ON HER CHEST — I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO HAVE THAT MAGICAL, UNCONSTITUTIONAL LOVING MOMENT WITH HIM I DIDN'T FEEL THAT AT ALL I ACTUALLY JUST WANTED SOMEBODY TO GET HIM OFF OF ME HER ANXIETY GOT MUCH WORSE AND ABOUT THREE MONTHS LATER, SHE WAS OUTSIDE WITH MAX IN A STROLLER I SAW IT OUT OF THE CORNER OF MY EYE, A BUS COMING TOWARDS US AND I WATCHED IT GET CLOSER AND EVERY SINGLE INCH OF MY BODY SAID THROW US IN FRONT OF THE BUS

SHE STOPPED HERSELF, GOT IN THE CAB AND WENT DIRECTLY TO THE PAIN WHITNEY WOMEN'S CLINIC AND CORNELL MEDICAL CENTER WHERE SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH SEVERE POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION THIS DOCTOR TREATED HER AND WITHIN THREE TO FOUR WEEKS SHE STARTED TO FEEL LIKE HERSELF I SAY TO WOMEN IN MY OFFICE, I HAVE NEVER NOT SEEN SOMEONE GET BETTER EVERYBODY GETS BETTER IF YOU COME FOR HELP, EVERYBODY GETS BETTER

DR BIRNDORF IS ABOUT TO OPEN THE MOTHERHOOD CENTER THAT WILL HAVE THIS KIND OF HOMEY FEELING WHERE MOMS CAN BE SCREENED FROM EVERYTHING FROM ANXIETY TO DEPRESSION THE INFANTS WILL BE HERE IF MOM NEEDS A BREAK AND WOULD LIKE THE BABY TO TAKE A NAP OR WOULD LIKE SOMEONE TO HELP CHANGE A DIAPER, WE HAVE A NURSERY DIRECTOR AND ASSISTANT THAT WILL BE THERE THE CENTER OPENS NEXT MONTH AND GOAL IS TO LET WOMEN KNOW THEY'RE NOT ALONE

ON THE EASTSIDE, CINDY HSU, CBS 2 NEWS ABOUT ONE IN FIVE WOMEN SUFFER FROM SOME SORT OF POSTPARTUM MOOD DISORDER WHICH CAN START BEFORE THE CHILD IS EVEN BORN AND NEARLY 80% OF THE CASES GO UNTREATED MOTHERHOOD CENTER OPENS NEXT MONTH SUCH A GOOD IDEA
