Maternal Mental Health Month

Maternal Mental Health Month

Postpartum Support International highlight that around 1 in 5 new mothers will experience some form of perinatal anxiety or mood disorder. The month of may, including the first Wednesday which marks World Maternal Health Day, allows the opportunity to address maternal mental health. These illnesses often are left unaddressed and untreated, having long-term family consequences.

Maternal Mental Health Month, Week, and Day!
