• Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders

  • While feeling moody before or after childbirth is expected and normal, anywhere between 15 to 20% of women experience more serious symptoms of anxiety and depression. If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, or something similar, you could be suffering from a perinatal mood or anxiety disorder:

    • Feeling sad, depressed, panicky, irritable, or angry
    • Having trouble eating or sleeping
    • Worrying that you never should have become a mother
    • Contemplating hurting your baby or yourself
    • Having difficulty bonding with your baby

    Perinatal mood & anxiety disorders affect women from all walks of life and can appear any time during pregnancy and the first full year after giving birth. There is growing evidence that perinatal mood disorders can affect fathers and adoptive parents as well. Get the help and relief you deserve by making an appointment with a licensed therapist today.
