PREVENTING, IDENTIFYING & TREATING POSTNATAL DEPRESSIVE DISORDERS: Postnatal depression, PTSD, Postpartum psychosis (and knowing when ‘the Blues’ aren’t just ‘the Blues’)
There is much misunderstanding and confusion over the various postpartum depressive disorders (ie, PND, PTSD & Psychosis) and also little practical knowledge of recognising when common normal physiological ‘Blues’ have warped into pathological abnormal ‘Pinks’.
During this presentation, the two senior midwives of Australasian Kathy and American/European Ana, will together give thorough overviews to fully understand the clinical differences, including detailed power-point slide lists of potential symptoms and potential cures – as well as practical ways to avoid postpartum depressive disorders.
