Season Finale - Postpartum: The Forgotten Trimester

Navigating the pregnancy and birth of a child can be overwhelming and rewarding too. Being tried and tested to come out on the other side of delivery with the gift you've been waiting for is the highlight of the journey.  But wait; what about the after?  The postpartum time is neglected in today’s society leaving women and birthing people feeling ill-prepared, underserved, and often lonely to cope with physical., mental, and emotional changes. Postpartum Physical Therapist Lashonda Jones and Licensed Perinatal Clinical Psychologist Dr. Angel Montfort discuss the postpartum period, the forgotten trimester, and clues for wisely preparing.
