Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders affect 1 in 7 women

Most people have heard of postpartum depression, but there are several other mental health concerns affecting women during and after pregnancy. Maybe you just don't feel like yourself, you're sad most of the time, or are having a lot of intrusive thoughts or worries - you are not alone and you have done nothing wrong. PMAD can develop anytime during the first year postpartum, so some women may dismiss these symptoms as being a part of postpartum. If you're not sure whether or not you might be experiencing PMAD, there are screening tools available to help you get more information. Please click on the link below:

If you scored 10 or above, please reach out for help ASAP. If I am not the right person for you, I will help you find the support that you need. meagan@meagangeurtscounseling.com or 630.204.3020.

Asking for help is not easy, but you do not have to suffer alone. It is my goal to help Moms gain an understanding of what is happening to them, know that they are not alone, and that they do not have to continue to suffer.
