There is a marked increase of perinatal mood disorders, especially anxiety, since March 2020. This is not surprising as we know many new families have had a decrease in support and an increase in isolation during the COVID-19 reality. We will explore some of the issues arising due to the pandemic and how care providers can help support struggling pregnant and postpartum participants during this difficult time.
