During pregnancy, there tends to be a heavy focus on labor and birth, with far less emphasis on what happens once you get home with the baby.

Early Childhood Engagement Producer Stefanie Ritoper and LAist Associate Editor Lisa Brenner responded with a story called, "What Even Is Postpartum? A Guide to the Other Side of Childbirth." It features a doctor, a psychologist, a lactation consultant... and the experiences of over 70 women.
