Our network of experienced mental health specialists will ensure an enjoyable and smooth transition to motherhood.
Sometimes, pregnancy and birth can trigger depression and other mental health issues in women. This can be overwhelming when you have a new baby to care for, but it is vital that you reach out for help and support.
It is important to remember that feeling sad or low after giving birth is completely normal, and often referred to as the ‘baby blues’. If you are still feeling low after two weeks, it is possible that you may have postnatal depression.
The symptoms may include depressive episodes and mood elevation. It’s essential to seek professional help. Talk to our specialists about mental and physical health concerns you have to ensure a complete peace of mind.
