Many new parents develop postpartum depression and other perinatal mood disorders, which are highly treatable with the help of a healthcare professional.
With appropriate support, parents experiencing postpartum depression will enjoy their babies more, feel back to their normal selves, and improve their baby’s health and wellbeing.
You and your baby are important. If you feel sad, worried, angry or anxious, you are not alone. You can find support through your healthcare provider.
