Have a baby? Pregnant? How are you feeling?

Isolated…Sad…Alone…Guilty….Depressed…Angry… Confused… Frustrated?

Getting the support you need can make a difference:

“I didn’t believe that I would get better. I felt so hopeless. My life was unraveling before my eyes. Between the support of the line and the PMD group at the Ontario Early Year’s Centre, I know that we will do well. It makes all the difference to know that help is there when you need it. The support has made a tremendous difference.”

“I didn’t know what I could say to make my wife feel better. She would lose her temper for things that never used to bother her. After reaching out for support, I feel much calmer now. I am not sure what I would have done if I couldn’t call to talk with someone who understood what was happening.”

You are not alone. Caring non-judgmental support is available in English, Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Spanish, Portuguese, Mandarin and Cantonese: Monday to Friday 10 am to 10 pm by calling:

PhoneIcon Brampton & Mississauga – 905.459.7777

PMD Fast Facts

1 in 5 women will experience PMD during pregnancy or
after the birth or adoption of a baby

Men can also experience Postpartum Depression.

A new mother might not recognize depression or anxiety as she is tired, overwhelmed, or simply adjusting to life with a new baby

It is important for a parent with symptoms to see a
doctor or medical professional. PMD can be treated.

Pregnancy and postpartum mental health is a family issue:
Dads and other helpers need support, information and connection too.
