After posting this video on TikTok,
we have come to discover that there are a LOT of mommas out there who struggle with postpartum depression and mental health. It was a lot more than we ever could have imagined. It is crazy that it isn't talked about more. Mommas who have used CBD to help them through it have expressed how much it helped them. We decided to investigate, and found some interesting articles and research we thought you guys would find interesting too!
More than a quarter of women describe their births as traumatic
In this article, "6 Benefits of CBD in the Postpartum Period'
written by Zawn Villines, she says:
"More than a quarter of women describe their births as traumatic, with about 9% experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder after birth. A number of published case reports suggest that cannabidiol is an effective alternative to pharmaceuticals for the anxiety associated with post-traumatic stress. Research on rats suggests that cannabinoids may help modulate fear memory, changing the way the body and brain respond to memories of trauma. This can ease the troubling symptoms of PTSD, including flashbacks and anger."
New discoveries of the body potentially offer new, natural solutions!
