Postpartum depression isn’t commonly discussed in the world, and especially not in a country like Pakistan.We have Qurat Sheikh today, who is a mom and manages a community for postpartum moms.
In this podcast, Qurat talks about her everyday mental health issues, her past issues with postpartum depression, how she used crochet art and crafting to come out of it and eventually started her community for postpartum support, Glimmer of Hope.She talks about society and how it treats new moms and how we can be more supportive to them and show kindness.
You can find Qurat and her work on the following links.
