Happily, the Mothers Act was recently passed as part of our new healthcare legislation. My colleagues and I are thrilled that finally, postpartum depression is receiving the attention it deserves. One out of five new mothers experiences this devastating illness. The Mothers Act will provide education and support to suffering mommies so they and their families will be helped nationwide. In addition, funding for research will be granted to further our knowledge in the field.
