About this Training

In our society, there is a myth that mother(parent)hood is supposed to be a joyful and happy time in person’s life and that they want to spend every moment with their babies. When they don’t feel this way, they often feel guilty, ashamed, and a lone in their struggle and believe that something is wrong with them. This is common struggle that pregnant and postpartum people experience, and it is not talked about enough since up 20% of pregnant and postpartum people will develop a Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders (PMADs). This workshop will focus on understanding the symptoms and signs of Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders (PMADs) and resources available to support this population.
