Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders

What Are PMAD’s?

 

Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders, including postpartum depression, are the most common medical complication associated with pregnancy and childbirth. PMADs present a widespread public health problem that may have serious consequences for mothers, infants, and families.  They can affect women regardless of ethnicity, race, age, or income level. An estimated 15 to 20% of women – or approximately one million women – in the U.S. suffer significant symptoms of depression and/or anxiety during the perinatal period with an even higher percentage of women of low socioeconomic status, experience anxiety, depression or psychosis.

The perinatal period refers to the preconception period, pregnancy itself, all the way through the child’s first year.  Many women experience mild mood changes during the perinatal period, a time when women are particularly vulnerable to PMADs. The rapid change of hormone levels, genetic risk, and other biological or inflammatory processes are often given as reasons for depression and/or anxiety.  In addition, social stressors such as financial strain, violence, and troubled relationships may increase a woman’s chances for PMAD.  Additionally, a history of depression or anxiety and/or trauma or traumatic loss, may contribute to the overall picture.

This certainly can happen during the birth of a child and can have long lasting effects on mother, baby and witnesses present at the birth.
