Antenatal Depression - Causes, Symptoms & Treatments

Posted on Friday, 08 September 2017, in Depression, Maternal Health

Antenatal Depression

With 1 in 3 women reporting that they experience severe depression during pregnancy, it’s likely that either you, or someone you know has been affected by postnatal depression (PND).

Whilst the ‘baby blues’ will right itself after a while, postnatal depression will not. It’s important that those suffering with PND open up and talk to someone about what they are going through. All too often those who suffer feel guilty and ashamed of their illness and instead of discussing it with others they conceal their worries and keep everything bottled up. With so many women suffering with PND, no one should feel alone or isolated. There are different treatments available, including talking therapies, medication and health visitors. The first step is to let your friends and family know what’s going on and talk to your GP.
