Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) can occur during pregnancy and one year after birth. PMADs most commonly impact the birthing person. But partners and adoptive parents can also experience difficulties after the baby joins the family.
Typically, PMADs can take away the individual’s ability to enjoy parenthood and it is important for individuals to get the support they need.
PMADs do not discriminate and can impact anyone regardless of age, income level, race, ethnicity, and culture. It is important to seek out support and help early on since PMADs can have risks if left untreated including negative impact on your physical health, relationship problems, and unemployment. Individuals who have had a previous episode of a perinatal mood or anxiety disorder are at increased risk for developing a PMAD.
