Maternal & Paternal Mental Health focuses on the overall emotional well-being of individuals that are soon to be parents or have become parents within the last year. When hearing the term Baby Blues or Postpartum, most people associate these terms with women that have Postpartum Depression (PPD). However, fathers can also experience depression or anxiety around the birth of their child. If you are feeling excessive worry or depression during or after pregnancy that impairs your ability to enjoy the experience, then I recommend that you call for a free phone consultation or reach out to the resources below:
