Today I talk with Marriage and Family Therapist, Catherine O’Brien. Catherine is a mom of a 6 year old and almost 2 year old. She is incredibly passionate about helping new parents and helping couples strengthen their relationships when adding a new baby to the family. She helps clarify the difference between all the different postpartum mood disorders as well as the risk factors. We also talk about how she got into working with the postpartum demographic and she shares advice for couples to help with this transition, including making time for each other and information about the Gottman relationship institute. Her information is so helpful and her passion and support is contagious! Enjoy!
