Pregnancy and a new baby can bring a range of emotions. In fact, many feel overwhelmed, sad, or anxious at different times during their pregnancy and even after the baby is born. But if these feelings last for more than two weeks, and make it hard to carry out daily tasks, like caring for themselves or their family, a parent may have perinatal depression or anxiety. These are common and treatable health conditions during or after pregnancy. And that’s why a new parent, or those supporting them, should reach out right away for help.  The National Maternal Mental Health Hotline’s counselors provide real-time emotional support, encouragement, information, and referrals. Pregnant and postpartum people can get the help and resources they need, when they need it.
