Postpartum Depression Counsellors

Women are at an increased risk of depression during pregnancy (known as the antenatal or prenatal period) and in the year following childbirth (known as the postnatal period). This time frame (the period covered by pregnancy and the first year after the baby’s birth) brings with it many changes and sometimes mental health concerns can arise from a significant life transition.
Perinatal and postpartum depression affects more than the mother. It can impact her relationship with the baby, the child’s development, the dynamic between her partner and other members of the family. In its most extreme form it can result in perinatal psychosis or postpartum psychosis. Seeking treatment for postpartum depression is important. There are a range of effective treatment options from knowledgeable and trained perinatal and postpartum therapists.
