Paige Bellenbaum, LMSW, is the Founding Director and Chief External Relations Officer at The Motherhood Center of New York. After her first child was born, Paige suffered from severe postpartum depression that nearly ended her life. Once she began to heal, she became committed to fighting for education, screening and treatment for postpartum depression so that no more women would have to suffer silently. She drafted legislation in New York State that was championed by State Senator Liz Krueger, mandating hospitals to provide education on PMADs and strongly encouraging screening of all new and expecting mothers that was signed into law in 2014. Since then, Paige has been an outspoken advocate on the issue of postpartum depression and uses her own story as a tool for change. She has appeared on the Today Show, Good Morning America, NPR, PBS Newshour and in Women’s Health, Fortune, The Wall Street Journal, and several other media outlets.
