Bonnie Kerker, MPH, PhD, with the New York University Grossman School of Medicine, researches adverse and positive experiences that families face and the impact those experiences have on young children as well as how to mitigate the adverse experiences. She joins us this week to talk about postpartum depression, asking for help, self care, and more.
