Mental Health during Pregnancy and Parenting

Depression and anxiety are complications commonly experienced during pregnancy and parenting by both mothers and fathers. Without treatment, these distressing feelings may affect how parents respond to and bond with their child as well as impact the child’s development.

Fortunately, help is available—from family, peers and providers— to prevent, identify and treat perinatal mood disorders and to build the healthy family relationshipthat help communities thrive.
