Ameé Quiriconi is a mental health and parenting advocate, she hosts a podcast called One Broken Mom, and she is seriously awesome. I think you’ll find our conversation about the effect of intergenerational trauma on perinatal mood disorders fascinating.  While I’ve discussed biological factors frequently on the show, Ameé and I dig into risk factors linked to a personal or family history of anxiety, depression, or trauma.  There may be more triggering you than you realize, and more that you need to work toward healing.AMEE'S CONTACT INFORMATIONWebsite // Podcast // InstagramRESOURCESPostpartum Support International 24/7 Warmline - 1-800-944-477324/7 Crisis Text Line US - Text 741741 Canada - Text 686868 UK - Text 85258 National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 24/7 Hotline - 1-800-273-8255Please subscribe, leave a review, and follow Postpartum Perspectives on Instagram.You are important, your wellness is a priority, and your mental health matters.
