Seeking Help

  • Mental illness during pregnancy is nothing to be embarrassed about and it is very common. 1 out of 8 women experience postpartum depression in the U.S., and this number nearly doubles for Black and Latina women. It is important to seek help as soon as possible to ensure a healthy pregnancy and bond with your baby.
  • Call your doctor if symptoms:
    • Don’t fade after two weeks
    • Are getting worse
    • Difficulty caring for your baby
    • Difficulty completing everyday tasks
    • Thoughts of harming yourself or the baby
