Perinatal Depression and Anxiety

What is Perinatal Depression and Anxiety?

Up to 25% of pregnant and new mothers in Oregon have lasting feelings of sadness or stress that get in the way of their daily lives. This is called perinatal depression and anxiety. (Perinatal refers to the time you are pregnant through the baby’s first birthday.)

Are you feeling sad or depressed?
Do you feel overwhelmed?
Do you feel more irritable or angry than usual?
Are you having trouble bonding with your baby?
Do you feel anxious or panicky?
Are you having upsetting thoughts that you can’t get out of your mind?
Do you feel as if you are “out of control” or “going crazy”?
