Becoming pregnant and delivering a child is one of the most cherished periods in a woman’s life. However, that period is not necessarily free from worries, frustrations, fears, anxieties, depression, and even self-harm. In fact, research shows 13–37% of pregnant women have mental health issues. After delivery, 15% of women have significant mental health issues. The well-known conditions are Postpartum Blues, Postpartum Depression, and Postpartum Psychosis.
Moreover, many female patients who are already taking treatment for mental health issues get married and want to become pregnant. They have many questions and worries.
The majority of infertile couples are frustrated, anxious, and frequently go through demoralization and depression. Miscarriages and abortions also have their mental health consequences, frequently resulting in depression.
The perinatal mental health services were initiated to address all these issues. Our experienced psychiatrists at the Perinatal Clinic of Vazhikatti have the necessary expertise in treating these patients. The expert, skilled staff at our Perinatal Clinic will provide the best psychiatric care for the women, with state-of-the-art assessment, support, and treatment intervention services in an evidence-based, scientific manner.
