Utah Valley Hospital in Utah County has been called the "baby factory" because so many new parents go their to deliver their babies. Because 1 in 7 women experience some form of postpartum mood disorder after giving birth, the hospital is proactively screening every new mom before sending her home to see if she has symptoms of postpartum depression or postpartum anxiety. Since implementing this policy, hospital staff has been able to catch - and treat - an additional six to ten cases each week. KSL NewsRadio's Doug Wright talks to Lindsay Aerts, host of the KSL Mom Show and advocate for maternal mental health about how this screening policy can save lives and why other hospitals should follow suit.

Sometimes our kids aren't in a good mood, or are disappointed, or want to be frustrated and that says nothing about our parenting. If that's not the measure of a "good mom" then what is? Molly and Lindsay discuss how to know if you're doing a good job as a mother.
