Episode 18: Challenges with Breastfeeding and Postpartum Depression

Join Dr. Raja Sivamani and guest, Dr. Stephanie Canale. Dr. Canale is the founder of Lactation Lab, which provides innovative and proprietary breast milk tests for mothers. We’ve all heard the saying that “breast is best”, but many don’t discuss the internal and external pressures that moms might face that can be detrimental to mental health. In this episode, Dr. Canale shares her expertise, the importance of self-care, and what partners, family, and friends can do to help during the postpartum phase. If you are struggling or know of someone that might be, tune in to hear “it’s not your fault.”
