Maternal Mental Health

Perinatal and Postnatal



If you are the perinatal and postnatal period and are experiencing symptoms of increased sadness, frustration, and anxiety, it's important to take maternal mental health seriously. It's vital to know that there are resources and support available to you, and that you are not alone. Don't hesitate to seek help if you're struggling with your mental health during pregnancy or after giving birth. It's common to experience emotional ups and downs during this time, but don't let it go untreated. Speak to your healthcare provider or a mental health professional to discuss your concerns. Remember, taking care of your mental health is just as important as taking care of your physical health, and it's important for both you and your baby's well-being.
