Most people are familiar with postpartum depression (a topic we’ve discussed more than once on this show) or even bipolar mania. Less well known is postpartum bipolar disorder, despite the fact that childbirth is a significant trigger of bipolar disorder. Our guest this week is a woman who developed this condition very soon after the birth of her second child. She shares her stories of hypergraphia (an overwhelming need to write or draw), how her husband dealt with the condition, the treatments she adhered to, and how she stays stable with the condition today. Listen in to learn more about this little-known condition.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS  

  • What is postpartum bipolar disorder and what causes it?
  • How common is it and what is the treatment?
  • How postpartum bipolar affected her husband.
  • How to stay stable with the disease.
