One in 7 women experience depression and anxiety during or after giving birth, according to the American Psychological Association. Most find it hard to talk about. But not Los Angeles-based comedian Angelina Spicer. She talks about her experience with postpartum depression a lot — and she's also become a serious advocate for maternal mental health.
