Dr. Susan Feingold envisioned becoming a psychologist at an early age and pursued a PsyD in clinical psychology with dreams of healing and helping many. With her second child, Susan experienced postpartum depression and anxiety (PMAD) which changed her life mission and career path, and she became a specialist in the treatment of perinatal mental health almost 3 decades ago. Susan, along with her life partner, shepherded the first ever postpartum criminal law through the Illinois legislature to become the first postpartum psychosis/depression law in the nation in 2018. Along with her clinical work, she is dedicated to advancing postpartum legislation throughout the U.S. and is nationally and internationally known as an expert, speaker, and author on PMAD and perinatal advocacy to change outdated laws .
