Maternal Mental Health
Mood changes and symptoms before and after pregnancy are common, and often resolve on their own during the two weeks postpartum. However, many women experience perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) that can occur during pregnancy and during the first year following birth. These mood disorders are often triggered by the drastic change in hormone levels. PMADs can also occur because of life stressors, relationships with others and environmental factors. With treatment, these disorders can often be successfully treated, allowing women to more effectively take care of themselves and their babies.
