Overall, I thought this was a excellent podcast. The topic was very interesting and relevant and the podcast explained how so. This podcast also provided a lot of great information on the topic that I think many people do not know. Everything was explained in a great way and nothing was left out. After listening to this podcast I feel like I gained a lot of valuable information on the topic. Although I think the introduction introduced the interviewees and information well I think it was too long.

Postpartum depression is something that does not get the focus that it needs. It is a problem that effects many women after pregnancy. Overall it was interesting to hear how these moms just being connected with people or other moms helps them feel better. In some cases this depression may just stem from the overwhelming nature of being a new mom and not knowing how to deal with it. Hearing how different populations are effected was interesting as well. Overall an informative and fun discussion to listen to.
