According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every one in nine American women suffer from postpartum depression. The most common symptoms include anxiety, sadness, anger, feeling disconnected from a child and withdrawing from loved ones.
Trump told Oz that it’s important to be open about this topic as many women go through the illness alone and don’t know who can help them.
