There's a lot of information around about postnatal depression, but not as much discussion about perinatal anxiety. Perinatal anxiety is more common than depression, with up to 39% of women experiencing it. It can involve worry, apprehension, or nervousness, with a range of other symptoms such as sleeplessness. Risk factors for perinatal anxiety include financial difficulties, prior mental health difficulties, a difficult pregnancy or birth, or a poor relationship with your partner. Anxiety typically responds to medical and psychological treatments. If you would like to begin investigating your treatment options, contact Nurture today.
