About Mood Disorders
About one in five women will experience an episode of major depression in their lifetime.
Bipolar disorder is characterized by extreme shifts in energy, behavior and mood cycling between the “highs” of mania or hypomania to the “lows” of depression.
Unlike the mild worry that many people experience in response to stressful situations, individuals with anxiety disorders have intense, pervasive anxiety most days.
An individual's behavioral response to stress not only impacts emotions, but also can impact physical and cardiac health.
Medication During Pregnancy & Breastfeeding
Different psychiatric medications have different risk profiles for use in pregnancy, so it is important to work closely with your psychiatrist to determine the type of medication that is best for you.
