Perinatal Mental Health

Having a baby is supposed to be an amazing experience, the best moment of your life.

 

Everyone says, “You must be so happy!” But what if you’re not? What if you’re depressed, anxious, or overwhelmed? What if your partner or friends are worried about you, but you just don’t know how to talk about it? You’re not alone. Postpartum Support International can help you get better.

Did you know? 1 in 5 moms and 1 in 10 dads suffer from postpartum depression. People of every age, income level, race and culture can develop Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs). Defined as the time from conception through one year postpartum, PMADs include: Depression (PPD), Anxiety (PPA), Panic Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Postpartum Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Bipolar Disorder, and Postpartum Psychosis (PPP).
