Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs) occur more often than people realize. These disorders-depression, anxiety, panic, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and postpartum post-traumatic stress disorder-occur in 20% of childbearing women. Psychosis affects 1-2 women in 1000. PMADs are in the top three causes for maternal death. This talk will describe the spectrum of PMADs, signs and symptoms, risk factors, treatment options, and resources.
