Postpartum and Perinatal Mental Health
Women of every culture, age, income level and race can develop perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Symptoms can appear any time during pregnancy and the first 12 months after childbirth. There are effective and well-researched treatment options to help recover from these conditions. Although the term “postpartum depression” is most often used, there are actually several forms of illness that women may experience during and following pregnancy including Depression, Anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Bipolar Mood Disorder, and Psychosis.
