Postpartum Depression & Anxiety

A happy time filled with excitement and joy – that’s what most of us envision when someone is having a baby. For many women, this is not a reality.

Nearly 20% (1 out of every 5) women will experience some form of depression or other perinatal mood disorder (PMD) during pregnancy or after having a baby.

PMD encompasses mood disorders from pregnancy until two years after a baby is born and includes depression, anxiety, psychosis, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Alongside women, more than 1 in 10 men experience postpartum depression.

PMD is the most common complication of childbirth. If it goes untreated, there can be serious complications for moms, babies and families including:

  • Disruption in mother-baby bonding
  • Interruption in the infant’s development
  • Family and relationship conflicts
  • In serious cases, can lead to suicide or infanticide
