Pregnancy Mental Health: Depression and Anxiety in Pregnancy Awareness Week

In 2004 I started this unique website dedicated to the topic of depression in pregnancy; at the time there was almost nothing known of it.

Information by PANDA (a great resource from Australia) says up to 1 in 10 pregnant women are affected, but the research now suggests its closer to 1 in 3, and it doesn’t just affect women but their partners and family.

My good friend Elaine Hanzak also talks openly about her experience of Post-Natal Depression which inspired her books Eyes without Sparkle and Another Twinkle in the Eye – you can find out more about the amazing work she is doing at http://www.hanzak.com There are also some great resources on the Mind website.

13-19 November is Perinatal Depression and Anxiety awareness week.  Raising awareness of Maternal – and Paternal – Mental Health literally saves lives. It’s time to talk about it.
