A happy time filled with excitement and joy … That’s what most parents expect when they’re having a baby. However, for many, this is simply not the case. Postpartum Depression and other Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders (PMAD) can create feelings of sadness, anxiety, frustration, scary thoughts, guilt and more.
The good news is that PMADs are highly treatable and you can fully recover. And if you are at risk for developing a PMAD, you CAN reduce your risk.
This playlist provides information on how to reduce your risk, helps you understand how PMAD differs from ‘Baby Blues’, offers ideas for how to talk to your kids about why you aren’t acting the way you usually do is, and much more.
If you want help from a mental health professional specializing in PMAD, call 866.852.4001.

Although depression is a very common disease affecting more than 300 million people worldwide each year, it remains misunderstood and stigmatized in general.
Many still believe that depression is simply a mood that can be “snapped out of” through positive thinking, prayer, exercise, other healthy lifestyle adaptations or a combination of these. While wellness and self-care are key components to an individual’s treatment and continued recovery, the truth is that depression is a serious health condition that needs a personalized treatment plan.
Pine Rest provides treatment for depression and other mood disorders at all levels of care, including support and therapy groups, outpatient counseling and therapy, partial hospitalization (day) programs and inpatient hospitalization. Our clinicians are trained to provide many different psychotherapy treatments including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and interpersonal therapy (IPT). We also offer specialty neuromodulation techniques that use electrical or magnetic currents to stimulate or alter brain activity. Learn more at www.pinerest.org/depression.
