Perinatal Depression (PND)

Perinatal depression affects approximately 10-15% of mothers, leading to intense feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and, in severe cases, difficulties in caring for themselves or their baby. Unfortunately, many mothers experiencing perinatal depression tend to ignore or downplay their symptoms due to unnecessary guilt, hoping that the feelings will simply pass on their own. However, without proper intervention, depression can persist for months or even years.

It is crucial to recognise that perinatal depression is a treatable condition. With the right help and support, most women affected by perinatal depression can make a full recovery. It's important not to suffer in silence but to reach out for the assistance you need.
