Postnatal Depression & Perinatal Mental Health
Postnatal depression is a type of depression that affects new mothers, typically within the first year after giving birth. Perinatal mental health refers to the overall mental well-being of women during pregnancy and the postpartum period. Both postnatal depression and perinatal mental health issues can significantly impact an individual’s daily life, relationships, and overall well-being, making it essential to understand the causes, symptoms, and available treatment options.
Postnatal depression and perinatal mental health issues can be caused by various factors, including hormonal changes, personal experiences, and environmental influences. Symptoms may include persistent feelings of sadness, low energy, difficulty bonding with the baby, and feelings of guilt or inadequacy.
Treatment for postnatal depression and perinatal mental health issues often involves therapy to help individuals address their feelings and build coping skills. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and interpersonal therapy are common therapeutic approaches used to address these conditions. In some cases, medication, such as antidepressants, may be prescribed to help manage symptoms.
