TWD is joined by Dr. Pinkey Patel, a PharmD, fitness instructor, mama of 2, and startup founder of The Snapback, an app designed to aid womxn from prepregnancy to postpartum, and from mental to physical health. Postpartum depression, in particular, is an underreported, underdiagnosed, and unfortunately accepted part of motherhood in South Asian communities. During the most momentous transformation in a person's life, healthcare systems need to be designed to support mothers fully and, hopefully, the conversation on this week's episode will help in the process of opening up and normalizing seeking help through new motherhood.
