Nikki shares her own journey with postpartum depression and how she has gone down a rabbit hole of learning to pay it forward by sharing tips and tools that she has learned along the way. The conversation covers the six human needs and how they can affect our mental health when not met, as well as how the internet can lead to overwhelm.
The speaker emphasizes the importance of keeping things simple and implementing sustainable habits in order to improve mental well-being. They also discuss postpartum depression, which is not discussed enough, and suggest that prenatal classes should include more information about mental health in order to normalize talking about it. Additionally, workplaces should provide practical support such as discussing workload expectations if someone is reducing their hours, as well as flexibility and understanding during this time.
