World Maternal Mental Health Day

May 3rd is Maternal Mental Health Day

Across the World 1 in 5 Mothers Experience a Perinatal Mood or Anxiety Disorder. Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders in Motherhood often go undiagnosed, unnoticed which leads to mother’s suffering in silence. The stigma of Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders keeps women from sharing their struggles during pregnancy and in the postpartum period, fearing that if they share struggle someone would judge them as a mother.

With hormone fluxations, lack of sleep, lack of support and overwhelming societal pressures to be the “perfect mom” it’s important to raise awareness on World Maternal Mental Health Day that it’s okay not to be okay and that with help you will be well. There is treatment avaliable and resources to help you remember you are a phenomenal mother who is going through a tremendous adjustment.

If you are struggling with the pressures of motherhood please reach out today- we’d be honored to remind you that you are phenomenal and you aren’t alone.
