Signs and Symptoms

Symptoms of maternal mental health problems vary between women (and men), but here are some of the major signs that you may want to consider for a possible maternal mental health disorder. Some of these disorders include:

  Postpartum Depression

 Perinatal Anxiety Disorders, including Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

 Bipolar I and Bipolar II

 Postpartum Psychosis

 Postpartum PTSD    

Any of these disorders may occur during pregnancy and not just in the postpartum period. These symptoms may wax and wane, but it is important to seek help from a professional should you think that you or someone you love may be in danger to themselves or others. Any suicidal or homicidal thoughts are not normal and should be considered a medical emergency and we urge you to seek medical care immediately.
