Today’s bonus episode guest is Dr. Maria Rothenburger, a psychotherapist who specializes in infertility. If you haven’t already listened to it, she shared her personal infertility story in Episode 18.

As part of our ongoing series about life after infertility, Dr. Rothenburger and Heather discuss anxiety and postpartum depression after infertility: 

  • Assuming they are taking place following beating infertility, what are the differences between clinical depression, postpartum depression, and postpartum anxiety?
  • Are women who’ve beaten infertility more likely to be diagnosed with depression?
  • What might cause clinical depression, postpartum depression, or postpartum anxiety (after beating infertility)?
  • Beyond seeing a therapist, what can women do to lessen the impact of clinical depression, postpartum depression, and postpartum anxiety?
  • Let’s say you’re still battling infertility or are currently pregnant, is there anything you can do to prevent clinical depression, postpartum depression, and postpartum anxiety?
  • Depression and anxiety are not limited to women who’ve gone through IUI or IVF. I found a fascinating article about post-adoption depression. Did you experience anything like that? What more can you tell us about it?
  • If you’ve had clinical depression, postpartum depression, or postpartum anxiety once, are you more likely to get it again?
  • Is there anything else you’d like to add?
