Perinatal Depression

Perinatal Depression (PND) is a depressive illness which affects between 10 to 15 in every 100 women having a baby.
It can happen any time during the perinatal journey, about a third of women with PND have symptoms which started in pregnancy and continue after birth. 

It often starts within one or two months of giving birth or several months after having a baby.

Perinatal Depression looks and feels like –

  • Feelings of hopelessness

  • Crying and a feeling of sadness

  • Loss of interest in the baby

  • Extreme tiredness and sleeplessness

  • Feeling joyless

  • Loss of appetite

  • Anxiety or panic attacks

  • Feelings of resentment

  • Ruminating on the past with regret

  • Feelings of guilt and shame for thoughts or feelings


If you feel you may be struggling with perinatal low mood or depression I can guide and support, you with:


Support in listening to and understanding the underlying thoughts, feelings, events, and situations that may be driving your feelings and symptoms of depression.
I will help you gain awareness and insight to some of these problems, thoughts, and feelings.
We will work with deep rooted harsh and critical thoughts & emotions that may be driving the depression with mindfulness and self-compassion work.
We will look forward with a solution focused approach to focus your attention on resources, new skills and abilities that can begin to lift the heavy feelings of depression and offer some  lightness.

Sometimes this work may need o address traumatic perinatal events if they are impacting the depression.
