Caring for someone with perinatal anxiety or depression can be confusing, stressful and demanding (perinatal refers to the period during pregnancy and up to one year after birth).
It is important to understand that perinatal anxiety and depression is a common and serious illness that can affect any individual and their family, regardless or culture or age. Sometimes more than one family member can be diagnosed with perinatal anxiety or depression. With this in mind, it is important to know the signs and symptoms and to seek help early.
