Supporting New Moms with Postpartum Depression and Income Struggles

Our guest today, Jenifer Joy Madden  of Durable Human, joined us last season to give a broad overview of babies and screentime. On this episode, she shares her thoughts on a new study just published in JAMA Medicine.


The study looks at developmental delays in infants and toddlers in relation to how much time they spend with screens. We examine two subgroups, moms with postpartum depression and those who are socioeconomically impacted, who are mentioned in the study as allowing their babies to consume more screen time. 


Jenifer Joy Madden is a health journalist, digital media educator, community advocate, and parent. She wrote two books: The Durable Human Manifesto: Practical Wisdom for Living and Parenting in the Digital World and How To Be a Durable Human: Revive and Thrive in the Digital Age Through the Power of Self-Design. And she gave an incredible TEdx Talk.
