Every new baby is one-of-a kind, and so is every mom. Some women seem to sail through pregnancy and motherhood with ease. Others ride a roller coaster of emotions, feeling happy and excited one minute, and lonely and sad the next. We recognize that early intervention is crucial to help women and their families for a healthy long-lasting outcome.

Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder (PMAD), also known as Postpartum Depression, can affect any woman who:

  • Is currently pregnant.
  • Has recently had a baby.
  • Has ended a pregnancy or miscarried.
  • Has stopped breastfeeding.

 PMAD can appear days or even months to a year after childbirth. 1 out of 8 women experience PMAD. Warning signs are different for everyone, but can include: 

  • Appetite changes.
  • Feeling anxious, hopeless, exhausted or crying uncontrollably.
  • Feeling guilty or worthless.
  • Feeling angry, irritable or nervous.
  • Trouble concentrating or sleeping.
  • Thoughts of harming self or baby.
  • Lack of interest in baby.
  • Lack of interest in sexual activity.
