Black Maternal Mental Health
1 in 3 black women are at risk for perinatal mood and anxiety disorders in comparison to 1 in 7 non-black women. Black women are faced with risk factors such as racism/discrimination, impaired trust in the medical system, and even the side effects of a global pandemic that critically impacts their mental health.

Mental Health & Infertility
1 in 5 birthing parents will experience a perinatal mood and anxiety disorder after giving birth. Being previously diagnosed with infertility or having had difficulties with trying to conceive naturally can increase these chances. With infertility being a topic that is not often discussed publicly, clients experience a lot of shame, guilt and isolation. Their self-esteem, romantic relationships, and mental health are significantly impacted by this medical diagnosis.
