Pregnancy is a wonderful journey of creating and growing new life, but with it comes changes and challenges that might be hard to manage. The combination of normal worries from new parents about the adjustments they must make, and the surge of hormones through the body during pregnancy can mean you feel more worried and upset than excited and enthusiastic. Perinatal depression and anxiety are relatively common conditions that result in feelings of anxiety and depression during pregnancy and just after the baby’s birth.
Symptoms of Perinatal Depression and Anxiety:
- Feelings of severe stress and worry
- Feeling overwhelmed and like you cannot cope
- Mood swings and stronger than usual emotions
- Feelings of guilt
- Lethargy or trouble sleeping
