Did you know most birthing people with a maternal mental illness never receive professional treatment for it? The sad fact is untreated depression and anxiety during pregnancy, or in the first year postpartum, can lead to negative long-term health in the children as well.
Did you know maternal mental illness is a serious public health problem?
It is the #1 complication of pregnancy & childbirth!
Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders can affect ANY birthing person, regardless of age, race, or financial situation.
There is a stigma surrounding mental illness, however, sufferers have nothing to be ashamed of! Seeking help sooner than later is key to successful recovery and proper management. Maternal mental health is extremely important as both the parent and baby can be impacted. Let’s break the stigma together by having an open conversation together!
Our goal is to provide you with the proper information and resources, as well as to have an open discussion about perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, which is why we invite you to attend this webinar.
You Are Not Alone
Discussing perinatal mood or anxiety disorder can be a sensitive topic, however, understanding the signs is crucial to early prevention.
Take a look at these statistics:
