Maternal Mental Health Awareness

Maternal Mental Health Awareness

May is Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month and if you are currently pregnant that might not mean much to you right now.

1 in 5 mothers will experience some symptoms of anxiety, mood disorder, post natal depression after birth. Usually these symptoms can be masked in feeling tired, run down and a lack of energy. This is to be expected post baby, especially after your first.

But if you are experiencing these feelings for a persistent amount of time (2-3 weeks), then it could be more than just tiredness of minding a small baby. 

I discussed this on Clare FM last week with birth and post partum doula Lisa Joyce.

Have a listen back here.
