Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders
Pregnancy and childbirth are major life events for women and their families. The transition to motherhood comes with joy, happiness, and many challenges. Your reactions and emotions may surprise you, especially if they seem negative. Hormones and emotions are closely connected. These changes and the lack of sleep in the first few days after having a baby can cause mood swings, leading to sudden bouts of sadness or crying.
