Have you recently given birth? Are you feeling exhausted,
anxious, depressed, or just not yourself? If you are, you
are not alone. Many women are not prepared for the wide range
of emotions they may experience after the birth of a child.
They often feel sadness, anger, anxiety, or a sense of inadequacy.
These feelings may vary in frequency and intensity, but are
collectively known as postpartum mood disorders. PSI is here
to help. We provide information, support and referral.
