Perinatal Mental Health

Mother MattersPregnancy is often a time of excitement and great joy, and it is a time of tremendous change and stress. During this transition a woman is vulnerable to developing mental health difficulties such as mood and anxiety disorders, even if she has no prior history of mental health difficulties. The two most common perinatal mental health difficulties are depression and anxiety. The Women’s College Online Mental Health Program offers information on risks and how to look after yourself, as well as interactive support groups. The Mother Matters professionally moderated online group for new moms is now underway. Look for opportunities to join a Mother Matters group in the near future.
