You are not alone.  All are welcome here.

About 10-20% of parents will experience anxiety or depression during pregnancy or within the first year after birth.
Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (most often depression and anxiety) are the #1 complication of pregnancy and childbirth.
PMADs are treatable and temporary.  Talk therapy, social supports, medication if necessary, and self care can help you feel better.
This is a guide to many of the services available in our community.
