Maternal Mental Health

Feeling down or overwhelmed after childbirth? You’re not alone.

If you’re experiencing feelings of sadness, anxiety or hopelessness during pregnancy or after childbirth, you might be struggling with perinatal or postpartum depression. Perinatal and postpartum depression can affect your mood and energy and make it difficult to enjoy this special time.

The good news—perinatal and postpartum depression are not only common, but treatable, and they can also impact fathers. At Davis Behavioral Health, our therapists specialize in maternal and parental mental health and understand the unique challenges new parents face. We’re here to support you on your journey to recovery.

We offer a variety of therapy options designed to help you manage your emotions, regain your energy and create a stronger bond with your baby, before, during and after pregnancy.

Risk Factors for Perinatal or Postpartum Depression

While any parent may deal with perinatal or postpartum depression, there are several risk factors that can increase the likelihood of dealing with this mental health concern, including the following:

  • Difficulty conceiving
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Premature birth
  • Traumatic birth
  • Loss of infant at birth
  • Family history of depression or anxiety before, during or after pregnancy
  • Unmet pregnancy or birth expectations

If you have experienced any of these risk factors, Davis Behavioral Health’s support groups may be able to help you through your struggles.
