Mighty Little Giants created the Essential Self Care kits for mother's and birthing people to assist with the their fourth trimester also known as postpartum. These kits free and available for Mother's in the NICU/NICCU, on bedrest, and mother's of full term children experiencing postpartum depression.
Postpartum depression is:
Depression that occurs after childbirth.
"Those who develop postpartum depression are at greater risk of developing major depression later on in life. Symptoms might include insomnia, loss of appetite, intense irritability, and difficulty bonding with the baby.
Untreated, the condition may last months or longer. Treatment can include counseling, antidepressants, or hormone therapy."
Research shows that 15% of new mothers show signs of postpartum depression. Mother's who have a child in the NICU are 40% more likely to suffer from PPD due to the atmosphere, financial stress, infant stability, lack of support and so much more. Research also states that PPD can last long after discharge from the NICU. Mighty Little Giants was created to become the peace in the midst of their storm.
