Talking hands: Supporting deaf mothers through postpartum depression

What you need to know:

  • My aim is to reach more deaf mothers and I work closely with Pumwani hospital who call me whenever they have a patient who is deaf.
  • Being a new mother, a deaf one at that, can make one even more vulnerable to mental health problems.
