Major life changes can contribute to disruptions in your emotional well-being, and the challenges of being pregnant or having a baby are no exception. Many women in the U.S. experience mood disorders and anxiety during pregnancy and after giving birth. Although these psychological issues are often a result of biological and environmental changes, when left untreated, symptoms can persist. 7 Cups offers online counseling for perinatal mood and anxiety disorders to help clients process complex emotions.
Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, which also includes postpartum depression, are likely to occur when excessive amounts of stress, sleep deprivation, anxiety, and a lack of support are all present. As a result, pregnant women or new mothers are prone to being affected. Although not all pregnant women or new mothers experience mood disorders, many do. Men are also not exempt from suffering. One in 10 new fathers develops perinatal mood and anxiety disorder.
Mood disorders like depression and anxiety can make daily life difficult, especially in the midst of pregnancy or with a new baby at home. Treatment is an important and beneficial way to learn how to cope with life circumstances and work through complex emotions in a healthy way. Overcoming mood and anxiety disorders can feel challenging, but working with a therapist or counselor is an important part of regaining mental health.
Perinatal mood and anxiety disorder has the potential to significantly impact your daily functioning, but it doesn't have to. 7 Cups offers convenient and anonymous online counseling for people suffering from perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Our experienced therapists are available to talk when you need it most and at any time of the day to help you process your feelings and emotions regarding pregnancy or a new baby.
