In this episode, Bryan talks to Chelsea Elker, who started experiencing intrusive thoughts about her newborn baby shortly after giving birth.
Chelsea talks about how Perinatal OCD shook her to her core, and how it's led her to the work she's doing today. Chelsea is now a Clinical Care Coordinate for the perinatal speciality clinic at PrairieCare.
