Perinatal Support

Expectant mothers, fraught with fear and trepidation, will be pleased to know about our Perinatal Support Program.

If your experience in the lead-up to the birth of your child is overly stressful, anxious, or weighed down by depression Your Family Practice is here for you.

In the early days after giving birth (usually 7-10 days), up to 80 per cent of mothers experience the ‘baby blues’—feeling teary, sad, or irritable. This usually only lasts a couple of days.

If you’re still feeling down after two weeks, please get in touch with Your Family Practice.

A number of mental health disorders are unique to the perinatal period, including:

  • Depression – antenatal and/or postnatal (just under 15% of mothers, up to 10% of fathers)
  • Anxiety disorders – antenatal and/or postnatal
  • Postpartum psychosis*

*Postpartum psychosis is rare (no more than 2 in 1000 mothers). However, it is a psychiatric emergency and medical attention should be sought immediately.
