Did you know...
That Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders (PMAD’s) affect 1 in 5 new moms across the Canada?
That ANXIETY is far more common than depression and includes symptoms like:
•Feeling restless/ constantly needing to be moving or doing something at all times
•Difficultly eating or complete loss of appetite
•Racing heart, dizziness, nausea
•Ongoing insomnia/ inability to sleep even though you’re EXHAUSTED!
•Overwhelmed by constant irrational fears or “Intrusive Thoughts” which often involve scary situations making you feel afraid to be alone with the baby.
And above all, that these illnesses are TEMPORARY & TREATABLE with help!
It’s challenging navigating new parenthood while experiencing a PMAD and we’re a support system you can count on while you work to regain your health.
Postpartum Social Support is one of the most important pieces in the recovery puzzle, and we’re working to close that gap in care by offering accessible services for Regina families.
If you have questions about your mental health, please don't hesitate to reach out.
