Did you know that perinatal mood disorders (PMADs) are the number one medical complication of childbirth and are even more pronounced for birthing persons who are BIPOC? While often referred to as postpartum depression or even simply as “postpartum”, PMAD can take many forms and can also occur during pregnancy. Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders include depression, anxiety, OCD, panic disorder, PTSD, and (much more rarely) psychosis.
