Bipolar Disorder and Pregnancy

I was recently interviewed for an upcoming production that will address bipolar disorder and pregnancy. As a result, I thought it would be an appropriate time to share my thoughts on bipolar disorder and pregnancy. The pressing question is can a woman with bipolar disorder have a successful pregnancy and postpartum period?

Please

Hi JenniferM, I particularly like the sentence, “if you choose to get pregnant, be sure to have a comprehensive plan in place to address prevention, treatment and recovery.”

It shows that women have a choice - great stuff!

If you haven't read it yet, there's a great guide on pregnancy, bipolar & childbirth here:

There's also a 'Pregnancy & Bipolar' podcast here (click the Download icon):

Thanks for sharing :)
