Sometimes parenting doesn't turn out the way we planned. We may envision our birth plan unfolding perfectly, followed by days, weeks, months or years of complete happiness as we watch our children grow. But reality can look much different. What happens when our expectations aren't fulfilled? How can that lead to depression and fears of failure as a new mother?
Postpartum Health Alliance is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness about perinatal mood and anxiety symptoms and disorders and providing support and treatment referrals to women and their families.
Did you know a mother can experience perinatal mood and anxiety disorders more than a year after her baby is born? Why is there a delay and why do these symptoms often go untreated? How can moms get the proper care to help overcome these feelings?
