I support pregnant and postpartum birthing people who are experiencing anxiety, depression, overwhelm & stress including adjustment to a new baby, mommy burnout, and parenting challenges.  

 

Support and Healing for Perinatal

Mental Health

Every birthing person deserves support throughout their journey to parenthood.  If you're experiencing feelings of depression or anxiety, remember you're not alone. While many parents experience some mild mood changes during or after the birth of a child, 15 to 20% of women experience more significant symptoms of depression or anxiety. 


If your symptoms persist for a few weeks or interfere with daily activities, it’s time to ask for help. Together, we'll work towards finding healing and support on your path to wellness.

What is a PMAD?

Perinatal mood and anxiety disorder (PMAD) refers to distressing feelings experienced during pregnancy and the first year after childbirth. Without treatment, symptoms may worsen, but it's essential to know that PMADs are treatable with appropriate support and intervention.

 

If you find yourself experiencing several of the following symptoms intensely and they last for more than two weeks, you may have a Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder (PMAD):

  • Intense anger and irritability

  • Sleep disturbances (difficulty falling asleep or sleeping too much)

  • Trouble concentrating and memory problems

  • Difficulty making decisions

  • Loss of interest in self-care

  • Changes in appetite (loss of appetite or overeating)

  • Inability to carry out daily tasks

  • Frequent crying spells

  • Loss of interest in activities she once enjoyed

  • Withdrawal from friends and family

  • Persistent lack of energy

  • Feelings of guilt or worthlessness

  • Intrusive and upsetting thoughts

  • Feeling anxious and panicky

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, let’s talk. You are not alone, and you are not to blame.
