Postpartum Mental Health Awareness
The postpartum period is a big transition for parents. A lot of emphasis is put on baby’s care and well being but sometimes we tend to forget that the first-year postpartum is a particularly vulnerable time for mental health for parents. We now know that as many as 1 in 5 women experience some type of postpartum mood and anxiety disorders and 10% of new dads experience paternal depression. These mental illnesses are more common than we think and that’s why it is important that expecting parents and partners be well informed about this subject.
Are you familiar with all different postpartum mood and anxiety disorders? Do you know what are the risks factors? Would you be able to recognize the symptoms if it happens to you or your partner? This workshop will cover these topics in details and help you recognize what’s normal to experience regarding mental health in the postpartum period and what requires professional support. A variety of helpful resources will also be given away at the end of the workshop.
This class is intended for expecting parents and partners. Parents who just had a baby are also welcomed.
