Ante & Postnatal Depression

Unfortunately, pregnancy loss and pregnancy after loss often go hand in hand with maternal mental health disorders like anxiety and depression. Below are some helpful resources for anxiety and depression during and after pregnancy. They are not specifically geared toward women with pregnancy loss, so they are great resources for any woman suffering from antepartum or postpartum depression or anxiety. If you know of other helpful resources, please comment or contact me with the details so I can add them to the list.
