Mental Health Awareness Month

Pregnancy and giving birth can be joyful and can also present a variety of strong emotions for pregnant and postpartum people.

  • Strong emotions may include feeling overwhelmed, scared, tired, worried, and inadequate. Depression, anxiety, and other symptoms during and after pregnancy are common and treatable. They affect new parents of every culture, age, gender, race, and income level.
  • For many people, these feelings go away on their own, in time. But for some, these emotions are more serious and require assistance. Help is available. You are not alone. Asking for help can help keep you and your baby as healthy as possible.
  • Unaddressed maternal health issues can lead to pregnancy-related death and unintentional harm to you or your baby.
  • Proper self-care and seeking help when you need it can help you maintain good mental health.

If you or a loved one is experiencing or affected by a mental health, substance use, or suicidal crisis, please call or text ‘988’ (or chat online on 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline’s website) for free, confidential, and immediate help.
