Post-Partum Depression Support

Phone: 888-626-2111

Overview

After childbirth, women experience a range of emotions: from joy that the baby is healthy and well to feeling weepy, sad, overcome, and overwhelmed. No matter how well a woman has prepared for her new role as a mother, she may worry that there is something wrong with her for having these mixed feelings.

At least one in ten new mothers experience various degrees of post-partum depression. Adolescent mothers are at twice the risk.
