Maternal Mood & Anxiety Disorders
This podcast features Dr. Lisa Weinstock, a reproductive and perinatal psychiatrist, discussing mood and anxiety disorders during pregnancy and in the postpartum period. As many as 15% of women experience postpartum depression, and anxiety disorders affect 15%–20%. Some women with anxiety disorders present with OCD-like symptoms, such as checking rituals; others will experience panic attacks or intrusive thoughts. She offers the good news that these psychiatric conditions can be successfully treated, with benefits that accrue to mother and baby alike.
