Perinatal Anxiety: Options for Screening, Treatment, and Support
Perinatal Anxiety is included under the umbrella of Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders which are experienced by approximately 1 in 5 mothers. This particular type of anxiety is characterized by intense uncontrollable worry, panic attacks, insomnia, racing thoughts and a general fear that something bad will happen (typically to one’s infant). Although worrying about one’s pregnancy, delivery, and baby is very common; these worries become concerning when they are all-consuming and start to interfere with one’s ability to function. This presentation will focus on ways to identify perinatal anxiety in your patients, the importance of screening throughout pregnancy and postpartum, strategies to share with your patients for managing their anxiety such as relaxation exercises, support groups, education, physical movement, mindfulness, etc., and resources to provide to patients in need of mental health treatment.
