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. 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

You are not Alone … help and support are available and you will get better. 

1 out of 8 women  experience PMAD. For more information, please call or drop by Hope for Mothers, no registration needed! Infants are welcome.
