Postpartum psychosis: Psychiatrist explains rarity, severity | CUOMO

In 2001, Texas mom Andrea Yates, who suffered from severe postpartum depression and psychosis, drowned her five children in a bathtub. In 2023, Lindsay Clancy, a midwife in Massachusetts, allegedly strangled her children before attempting suicide. She now faces murder charges. Clancy’s husband asked people to forgive his wife, as did Russell Yates, Andrea’s former husband. Yates joined “CUOMO” along with perinatal psychiatrist Samantha Meltzer-Brody to discuss postpartum psychosis and how it can affect new mothers. #postpartumpsychosis #healthcare #women
