Perinatal and Postpartum


Are you pregnant or a new mother and experienced or are you currently experiencing any of these symptoms in the past six to nine months?

  • Feeling sad or depressed?

  • Feelings of irritability or anger with those around you?

  • Are you having difficulty bonding with your baby?

  • Do you feel anxious or panicky?

  • Are you having problems with eating or sleeping?

  • Are you having upsetting thoughts that you can’t get out of your mind?

  • Do you feel as if you are “out of control” or “going crazy”?

  • Do you feel like you never should have become a mother?

  • Are you worried that you might hurt your baby or yourself?


If you answered yes to any of these symptoms, and/or other symptoms after or during your pregnancy this could indicate that you may have a form of perinatal mood or anxiety disorder, such as postpartum depression. While many women experience some mild mood changes during or after the birth of a child, 15 to 20% of women experience more significant symptoms of depression or anxiety. There is no reason to continue to suffer. Please know that with informed care you can prevent a worsening of these symptoms and can fully recover.


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 you recover.  One of these treatment options is Perinatal and Postpartum Mental Health Therapy.
