Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs)

Understanding the Difference Between Normal Postpartum Adjustment, the "Baby Blues" and PMADS

This course helps differentiate between and clarify common misunderstandings about normal postpartum adjustment, the “baby blues,” and PMADs, and describes each PMAD in detail using the language and experiences of actual parents rather than in clinical terms.


 “Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs)” is a series of three courses that cover everything you need to know in order to understand the full range of postpartum mood issues and their different treatment options – including self-care strategies, therapy, and medication – and how to access care for yourself or for someone you love.
