A mother herself, Clark understands how rewarding and also how overwhelming a new baby can be. It's an insight she has been able to utilize as a congresswoman.
"Moms comprise fewer than a fifth of Congress, so it’s especially important for us to bring these perspectives into policymaking," Clark told HuffPost. She added, "I introduced this bill because our moms need to know they matter, that we, as a nation, value them and will fight for the health and success of their families."
This legislation is truly groundbreaking and is shedding light on an issue that affects many families across the nation.
"When one in seven moms suffers from postpartum depression and only 15 percent get help, it’s clear our moms are underserved," the congresswoman told HuffPost. This bill will help to change that.
