Dispelling the Myths of Motherhood and Postpartum Depression

Diana Barnes, Psy.D.

What is the maternal instinct?  Do all of us have it or is it just a myth?  How does our own relationship with our mother influence our motherhood experience in combination of the expectations we place on ourselves?  And how does our perception of a ‘good baby’ or a ‘bad baby’ play on our emotions?

There is a real discrepancy between the romantic idealization of motherhood and the realities and when women come face to face with the contradictions, that alone can leave them vulnerable to the downward spiral of depression,” says Diana Lynne Barnes, Psy.D.

Diana Lynn Barnes Psy.D is an internationally recognized expert on the assessment and treatment of postpartum mood disorders. A frequently interviewed consultant to the media as well as a trainer and presenter on all facets of perinatal depression, Dr. Barnes is the co-author of  The Journey to Parenthood: Myths, Reality and What Really Matters.

A past president of Postpartum Support International, she currently sits on the President’s Advisory Council for that organization. She is also a member of the Los Angeles County Perinatal Mental Health Task Force, a core faculty member of their Training Institute, as well as a member of the statewide California Maternal Mental Health Task Force. In 2009, she co-founded The Motherhood Consortium, an interdisciplinary network of professionals who work with mothers, infants and young families.

This event will air LIVE on Monday, August 13th at 12pm EST/9am PST by webcast, phone or Skype as we discuss these important issues.  CLICK HERE TO JOIN!

Welcome Dr. Barnes, we are excited to have you join us here at the University of Moms!
