The Goldfields Women’s Health Care Centre offers Infant and Perinatal Counselling with Nicole Wade, Credentialed Mental Health Nurse.

Perinatal mental health refers to the emotional and psychological wellbeing of a parent around the time of conception through to 12 months after a baby is born (the perinatal period).

The baby blues refers to women feeling teary, sad or irritable in the early days after giving birth (usually 7-10 days). New mothers experiencing the baby blues is common (up to 80% of mothers) and usually just lasts a couple of days. 

However, if you are still feeling down after two weeks, talking to a professional such as Nicole is a good idea. 

There are a number of mental health disorders that are unique to the perinatal period in which parents may need to seek professional help. 

Mental health disorders that may be experienced during the perinatal period include:

Depression – antenatal and/or postnatal (up to 1 in 7 mothers and around 1 in 10 fathers)

Anxiety disorders – antenatal and/or postnatal (thought to be more common than depression and can occur on its own or co-occur with depression for either parent)

Postpartum psychosis is a psychiatric emergency– requires immediate medical attention (rare, 1-2 in 1000 mothers)
