Mental Health Resources

Mental health is just as important as your physical health when it comes to pregnancy. We have collected some resources that can help support you in this transition.

What should I be on the lookout for?

Pregnancy and postpartum can be times of increasing stress, changing hormones, and swings in mood. These sensations are very common. Changing mental health may mean needing to reach out for extra support, learning new coping skills, or seeing a professional.


Consider discussing with your healthcare provider if you are experiencing : 

  • Excessive worries or racing thoughts about many things

  • Low moods, crying often

  • Feeling irritable, picking fights with your partner

  • Negative thoughts about your changing body, not feeling like it belongs to you

  • Not able to sleep due to worries or low thoughts

  • Not able to eat, dress yourself, or shower

  • Feelings of hopelessness, wanting to end your life
