Do you know the number of women that develop Postpartum Depression or Anxiety?
What do you think?
Would you say 5%, 10%, 35%, 70%. How many women develop Postpartum Depression or Anxiety?
Here are the Facts:
1 in 7 women will develop a Postpartum Mood or Anxiety Disorder (PMAD)
Really? Yes, really, that is nearly 15% and some statistics would even say 1 in 5 women, which is 20%.
My private practice, Maternal Counseling Services, which is located in the Kalamazoo, Portage, Michigan area, specializes in providing mental health counseling for postpartum moms experiencing postpartum depression or postpartum anxiety. So I took some time to look at the numbers in Michigan.
To aid mothers to be and recent moms, we developed The Postpartum Mental Wellness Planner, a free online resource at www.postpartummentalwellness.com. In it you will walk away with a detailed personalized plan for your postpartum mental wellness.
If you are experiencing anxiety or depression and you've recently had a little one or are currently pregnant you can speak with a mental health professional by scheduling an appointment with Maternal Counseling Services, PLLC, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
