Prevent Post Natal Depression

  • Plan support during and after pregnancy

  • Pre-natal birthing classes to prepare new mothers and fathers for childbirth and post-birth childcare

  • Psychosocial counselling during and after pregnancy for emotional support, guidance and preparation

  • Do not discontinue antidepressant medication before or during pregnancy without the guidance of your doctor. Ask about medication options that could be safe during pregnancy

  • Although all these factors are protective some women may still develop PND due to genetic/biological vulnerabilities
