Pregnancy is an exciting and wonderous journey for parents, but conditions such as perinatal depression and anxiety can make this period of life stressful too. The various adjustments that must be made to prepare for a new arrival, along with the hormonal changes associated with pregnancy, can throw the body and mind into panic mode. Those experiencing perinatal depression or anxiety can have feelings of guilt and despair, worries about their child’s health, and other challenging emotions.
Life Resolutions Principal Psychologist, Mary Magalotti, is a mother herself and passionate about ensuring that all expectant parents have access to high-quality mental health support throughout their pregnancy.
Identifying Perinatal Anxiety and Depression:
