Pregnancy and a new baby can bring a range of emotions. Many new moms feel overwhelmed, sad, anxious, or exhausted at different times during their pregnancy or after the baby is born. Sometimes these feelings go away on their own, however, if these feelings last for more than two weeks and make it hard to carry out daily tasks, like caring for themselves or their family, a mom may have perinatal depression or anxiety. These are common and treatable health conditions during or after pregnancy. And that’s why a new mom, or those supporting them, should reach out right away for help.
