Perinatal Mental Health

Perinatal Mental Health

Are you or someone you know navigating the unique challenges of pregnancy or the postpartum period?

Are you experiencing a range of overwhelming emotions, impacting your ability to embrace this transformative time in your life fully?

Perinatal mental health encompasses the emotional well-being of individuals during pregnancy and the first two years postpartum. This critical phase involves the physical changes associated with childbirth and the emotional and psychological adjustments that come with becoming a parent.

Perinatal mental health challenges can manifest in various forms, including anxiety, depression, or other mood disorders. These conditions may affect individuals regardless of background, age, or mental health history. The fluctuating hormones, lifestyle adjustments, and new responsibilities can contribute to a range of emotions, from joy and excitement to stress and anxiety.

Common experiences related to perinatal mental health include:

  • Overwhelming feelings of sadness or despair

  • Challenges attaching to your child

  • Persistent anxiety or worry about the well-being of the baby

  • Changes in sleep patterns and appetite

  • Fatigue and difficulty concentrating

  • Feelings of guilt or inadequacy

  • Social withdrawal and difficulty connecting with others
