Maternal Mental Health is a term used to bring awareness to mental health disorders mothers experience during the prenatal, pregnancy and postpartum periods of birth. These clinical disorders include depression, anxiety and sometimes birth-related psychosis. Support is usually offered to mothers up until the baby's first year of life.
Maternal Mental Health support extends beyond the baby's first year of life. Mothers still experience mental health concerns and stressors when children are toddlers, school age, teens and even young adults. Mothers deserve ongoing support to cope with the many developmental changes of their children as well as unexpected experiences that occur in everyday life.
