A Postpartum depression and anxiety curriculum for any person interested in maternal mental health; providers, community health advocates, family members, obstetric/pediatric medical students, social workers, nurses etc. The curriculum can be self-administered for personal knowledge or used in a classroom setting as a supplement to existing Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders (PMADs) education.
The purpose of this curriculum is to present a non-clinical view of postpartum depression and anxiety (PPD & PPA) that focuses on factors affecting a mother’s experience after giving birth.
One woman’s personal experience as a case study, through the course of three pregnancies and births, will allow readers to better recognize contributing factors and piece together a plan of action in collaboration with existing perinatal professionals, using existing literature on the subject matter.
This is not intended to diagnose or treat any medical condition, it is the readers’ responsibility to examine the information presented and discern how best to use it; learner autonomy is the preferred method of learning. The Ingram curriculum presents a systems-based approach to this global health crisis and any/all information that can be imparted to those who work in the perinatal field is beneficial.
