1 in 7 women may experience postnatal depression in a year after giving birth, a study suggests. When you consider that more than 23,000 children are born every day in Nigeria, you get a sense of how this isn't just about the numbers, this is about the lived experiences of parents who have had to deal with this issue, in spite of the stigma surrounding it.
This masterclass, How to Deal with Postnatal Depression, explores this topic from the lenses of different women, and shares lessons, including what to do about it, how to get help, and how to heal afterward.
Healing takes time. With the right knowledge and community, it is easier.
