Motherhood is one of the most profound psychological shifts a woman can experience. Yet according to a recent survey, nearly three-quarters of mothers say society doesn’t understand or support them. The result: As 1 in 5 women experience mental health challenges that can last for years after the birth of a child. These struggles frequently go unnoticed and untreated, especially for BIWOC, often with long-term consequences to both mothers and children.

Anusha Wijeyakumar, wellness consultant at Hoag Hospital and author of Meditation With Intention, and YJ brand director Tracy Middleton will discuss why we need to talk more about maternal mental health and yoga’s role in helping women heal.
