KEY POINTS

On ‘Psychology Behind the Headlines,’ hosts Jessica Reyes, Patricia Wu, and MHTN Chief Medical Officer Dr. Dan Bober, discuss singer Natasha Bedingfield’s recent struggle with prenatal depression.

Not Just the “Blues”

Hormonal changes can cause mood swings during pregnancy, but these are different from clinical depression. Prenatal depression can make it difficult for women to function in their daily lives.

What to Look For

Signs of prenatal depression may include deep sadness, changes in sleep and appetite, and difficulty concentrating or taking care of usual tasks.

Severe Cases

In rare cases, women can develop postpartum psychosis, a serious condition requiring immediate medical attention. It’s crucial to seek help as soon as possible if you or someone you know is struggling.
