Our Story
Ruth Pobee

Ruth wants to better understand, and one day better treat, depression and nutrient deficiencies among pregnant women in underserved communities. Mental health during a woman’s pregnancy isn’t always taken into consideration, especially in places with poor health care and minimal medical resources. But she wants to change that, making sure pregnant women have proper mental health care.
