PERINATAL MOOD AND ANXIETY DISORDERS
Anxiety and/or depression during pregnancy and the first year after giving birth affect up to 1 in 5 new or expectant mothers and their families. These illnesses – also known as perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, or PMADs — are the primary complication of pregnancy and childbirth. PMADs can be successfully treated with a combination of self-care, social support, talk therapy, and medication if indicated. We will provide you with coping strategies along with behavioral techniques to push through the barriers and move on to the joys of motherhood.
