The decrease in adult socialization and loss of support system in addition to other regular household expectations can contribute to postpartum depression and anxiety. According to a recently released report by Aeroflow Healthcare, 56 percent of new moms said they had family and friends stay with them to help out. Still, 48 percent said they struggled with postpartum depression and 39 percent with social support isolation. Postpartum depression, a serious mood disorder, affects 1 in 7 women and can last for months if left untreated, according to the American Psychological Association. Black women specifically, who are already at greater risk of postpartum depression, are also at higher risk for childbirth complications, premature birth, and death during and after childbirth.
