Are you a new or seasoned parent navigating the transition into parenthood? Do you have any questions or concerns about your emotional experience when alone, with your child, or partner? One in 8 women and 1 in 10 men will suffer from symptoms of depression and anxiety, such as panic, frequent crying, and scary thoughts, during pregnancy or after the birth of their child. Regrettably, most of us suffer in silence due to stigma, feelings of embarrassment, guilt, and resentment, or worries that concerns will be dismissed. Let’s open up the dialogue about perinatal difficulties, symptoms of anxiety and depression, signs of needing help and options for support and treatment. Join the conversation and help raise your awareness towards creating an understanding, reducing the stigma and allowing those in need to seek help.
