Perinatal Mental Health Clinic

Perinatal mental health (PMH) refers to the emotional well-being of pregnant people and their families during pregnancy and the first year after giving birth. PMH conditions can affect mood, behavior, daily functioning, and well-being. They can include depression, anxiety disorders, and postpartum psychosis, which can sometimes manifest as bipolar disorder. Up to 27% of new and expectant mothers may experience

Birthing individuals are not to blame or at fault for experiencing a perinatal mental health condition: it is not brought on by anything a person has or has not done. Perinatal mental health disorders occur in people of every culture, age, income level and ethnicity.
