With Allison Murphy, MFT and Co-Founder of Mothers Care

Pregnancy and having a baby is a time of rapid growth and change that can trigger powerful emotions, from joy and excitement to fear and anxiety. Hormone fluctuations sleep deprivation, new responsibilities and increased expectations are all part of the process. How do we differentiate between a period of transition and a Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder?

Maternal mental health disorders are the most common complication of childbirth, are under-diagnosed and often untreated. Workshop participants will be taught:

  • How to identify Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs) and risk factors including Adverse Childhood Experiences.
  • Learn the evidence-based treatment options that are specifically designed for pregnancy and postpartum.
  • Understand stigma and barriers to treatment to improve the lives of women and their families.

This workshop is designed to give voice and compassionate understanding to the unexpected mothering experience.
