Mental health issues are the most common complications of pregnancy and childbirth, affecting approximately 1 in 5 parents during pregnancy or the first year after being pregnant. Maternal Mental Health issues include a range of disorders and symptoms, including but not limited to depression, anxiety and psychosis. When left untreated these disorders can cause devastating consequences for the mother, her baby, her family and society.
The good news is that risk for both depression and anxiety can be reduced and sometimes prevented, and with treatment women can recover.
This panel discussion focuses on some of the major causes of Maternal Mental Health issues and ways that innovators are working to address them.
