Maternidad Tabú, the Silent Epidemic: An Autobiographical Story of Postpartum Depression in Mexico
This chapter is a personal account of one Mexican woman’s experience with perinatal depression that began in pregnancy, worsened after the birth of her first child, and went untreated for several years. A chance exposure to a popular groundbreaking book helped Katia break her silence and set her on a journey toward recovery that took several years. Through her personal account, Katia offers other mothers suffering with depression the gift of hope.
