Support for the MOTHERS Act

October 24th is blog day for the MOTHERS act.

Katherine Stone from Postpartum Progress (who I was fortunate enough to hear speak & actually got a chance to chat with at BlogHer 2007) posted all the relevant information. - Here's a tiny excerpt from Postpartum Progress just to clarify:

"What is the MOTHERS Act? The Moms Opportunity to Access Help, Education, Research and Support for Postpartum Depression Act, or MOTHERS Act (S. 3529), will ensure that new mothers and their families are educated about postpartum depression, screened for symptoms and provided with essential services. In addition, it will increase research into the causes, diagnoses and treatments for postpartum depression. The bill is sponsored by Senators Menendez and Durbin."

I will be blogging about postpartum depression on this day, with an emphasis on PPD in women who conceived using ART. If you have any information or insight on this topic, please feel free to share it.

I have also added a button to my sidebar, where you can click for more information.
