Postpartum Depression Research in WNY

I was very pleased to see this article in this issue of  the Buffalo State College magazine 1300 Elmwood. 

It is still amazing to me that the United States, certainly thought to be a progressive country by most, is still one of the few that doesn't do more to help new mothers.  I think we've created a sterotype for ourselves of the perfect soccer mom - the mom who can be all, do all, and still look fabulous.  All while thoroughly enjoying every minute of it.  I'm not saying this mom doesn't exist but I'm certainly learning that this is not the norm.  Anyway... take a look at the article (it's not long):  After Baby: Now What?  Research examines access to health care for postpartum depression.
