They may not be "normal," but they're a lot more common than most people think.

Postpartum mood disorders – like depression, anxiety, OCD and PTSD – affect so many mothers, yet many women choose to suffer silently.

But not anymore.

KVUE spoke with more than 100 women in the Austin-Round Rock area about postpartum mood disorders in order to get a better understanding of what women can experience after giving birth. 

Our hope is that by sharing their stories, other mothers can feel like they are not alone and that there is hope.
