Mental Health Issues in Pregnancy

See a doctor

Mums-to-be have to deal with a whole host of changes – both physical and psychological – during the course of their pregnancy.

As such, it can be easy for serious mental health issues to be confused with the symptoms of pregnancy and overlooked.

However, for expecting mothers going through them, these issues can be very serious, leading to severe problems for both mother and baby.

These issues can be alarming, especially if you’ve never experienced anything similar before.

During pregnancy and within the first year after giving birth some women can be affected by mental health problems. Together these are called perinatal mental illnesses.

If you’re concerned about your mental health during the course of your pregnancy, don’t suffer alone. Talk to a doctor online now:
