Depression is one of the most common complications of pregnancy and women with pre-existing mood disorders are at particular risk of relapsing during pregnancy or postpartum. Many women are hesitant to seek help for mood disorders during pregnancy, but the consequences of untreated depression are serious for mom and baby. We want to make women aware that there is help and make them feel at ease for seeking help. Maternal depression can affect the child’s emotional and intellectual development. Medications (if necessary), support, lifestyle modification, and/or psychotherapy are very helpful and can prevent serious life-long consequences that arise from untreated maternal depression. We are bringing awareness in our area to let us care for you so you can care for baby.
