About the Author:
I love delivering babies. I enjoy working with women from different backgrounds who all have different life stories, and sharing some of the best times of their life as well as the more challenging times. I feel honored to be able to share those experiences with them.

New babies bring many life changes, big and small. Those first few weeks can be challenging as moms adjust to a new normal. Many new moms notice a change in their mental health, which should not be ignored.

Dr. Melissa Miller, St. Luke’s OB-GYN, discusses what new moms can do to notice and care for their mental health.
