Perinatal Mental Health and Wellbeing

Learn strategies and receive support for expectant and new parents through difficulties that arise during contraction, pregnancy, the postnatal period and the early years of parenting.

Key information you should know

  • The passage to parenthood can be filled with many physical and emotional stressors.
  • The arrival of a baby can create mixed emotions, as parents adjust to parenthood.
  • A psychologist in the perinatal field has an in-depth knowledge of the issues facing women and couples during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

Perinatal anxiety and/or depression affects up to 1 in 5 new mums and up to 1 in 10 new dads. The severity of postnatal anxiety and depression depends on the intensity, frequency and type of symptoms, and how much they interfere with your ability to function in daily life.
