So sad. I knew about post-partum depression, but not that it leads to suicide so often

Birth complications from lack of prenatal care. We're back to the age old health care problem.

That’s really sad. I can’t insgine being sad if I had a new baby. I would feel so happy. But I know some women just get depressed and don’t feel like themselves. So awful. My mom also had bad depression always after she gave birth

Where did you get that info? I couldn't find it in your link or any sites I could access from that link. Several sites repeat that suicide is the second leading cause, but not one mentions the leading cause.

Birth complications are becoming much more common in Texas than they used to be. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news...ld-why-n791671

Among the general population, suicide is the only 10th leading cause of death per the CDC, so there is definitely a disconnect there. Then again, many of the leading causes of death (heart disease, cancer, diabetes, lung and kidney diseases etc) affect a much older population, and new mothers are, of course, a comparatively young group.

In 2011, homicide was said to cause more deaths than suicides in the postpartum period. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3428236/

As a whole, though, pregnant and postpartum women are not all that safe in the USA. https://www.npr.org/2017/05/12/52809...eveloped-world

Actually, that turned out to be untrue.
