“Have you ever had a friend or family member you suspected was suffering from a Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder and just didn’t know if or how to approach them? With more than 20% of new parents suffering from Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders it is important to have the tools and language to help.

In this episode of Yoga | Birth | Babies, I welcome back licensed social worker and program director of the Motherhood Center, Paige Bellenbaum. Paige discusses how to approach a person you suspect may be suffering from Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders. She offers a way to gently converse with the parent without making them feel probed or awkward. This is a very important episode for birth workers and those supporting a new parent.”

TMC Support Group Success Story: Ashley Abeles

The perinatal journey looks different and feels different for everyone. When Postpartum Depression and Anxiety enters the equation, the impact can be debilitating for the whole family. Due to the ongoing stigma that surrounds maternal mental illness, many women don’t realize that the right support and treatment can make a world of difference.

Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders - with Paige Bellenbaum at the Prenatal Yoga Center

Paige Bellenbaum, Program Director of the Motherhood Center of New York joins Deb Flashenberg for the The prenatal Yoga Center's blog series Yoga | Birth | Babies.

"This deeply honest and moving discussion needs to be heard and discussed with all expectant women, partners and support people. It is reported that 1 in 5 women experience perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.  It’s important to note that this statistic is only based on reported cases and that many more women will suffer in silence. Many professionals feel a more accurate statistic is 1 in 3 people. Paige bravely discusses her own debilitating experience with postpartum depression and anxiety and her commitment to supporting those experiencing perinatal mood and anxiety disorder."
