Perinatal depression occurs around childbirth

Heard of perinatal depression before? Well, it’s a very common disorder amongst women yet very little is known about it.

Perinatal depression, like any other depression, is a mental health disorder that occurs in women during or around childbirth.

Every pregnant woman stands the risk of perinatal depression; some have suffered it in silence and others have suppressed it for fear of being misjudged. Why is that so? Very few women have knowledge about perinatal depression, the rest are either ill-informed or not informed at all.

In this documentary, TV3’s Wendy Laryea takes us on an enlightening exploration of Perinatal Depression: What she describes as “the silent killer”.
