Perinatal Mental Health Supports:

Perinatal mental health concerns are those which occur during pregnancy or in the first year following the birth of a child. Research shows that 80% of parents experience changes in mood after birth and locally, the percentage of pregnant individuals with anxiety or with a history of postpartum depression is nearly double the percentage reported for Ontario. Tammy Thomson, Public Health Nurse, HKPR District Health Unit
