  1 in 5    women experience a perinatal mood and anxiety disorder (PMAD). 

These disorders can impact anyone, and at any time.  However, there is an increased risk during the perinatal period. 

 

There is so much pressure on parents these days to do “all the right things”, and often times parents, especially Moms, place blame on themselves when things don’t go as planned, or things don’t come “easy and natural”.

 

These feelings can be exacerbated in the presence of a PMAD, and often Moms don’t seek help.  This can lead to increased costs of medical care, inappropriate medical care, exacerbation of symptoms, family dysfunction, disability, child abuse and neglect, and an adverse effect on early brain development. 

 

Despite all this, rates of perinatal mental health screening continue to be low.  Research proves early detection can greatly reduce the duration and severity of symptoms.  That is why we have created a safe place here at Moms Treating Moms, to allow you to discuss your symptoms without judgement while utilizing a trauma-informed approach. 

 

Dr. Brianne has a certification in perinatal mental health to adequately and appropriately screen and identify these disorders, offer research backed treatments within her scope of practice, and provide referral options to the appropriate medical professionals when needed.  We are here to help!
