Pregnancy: Anxiety and Depression

The emotions can change drastically in pregnancy, obviously due to the impact of having a baby, but there is also the physical strain and changes to cope with, especially if you are working full-time and have existing children to look after. Some women describe panic attacks, of extreme anxiety or general depression and worries if they have had previous post-natal depression. Traditional Chinese Medicine emphasies the interconnectedness between physical and emotional health, it aims to achieve a more balanced emotional state. Sessions can complement help from a trained medical professional such as a midwife, counsellor or doctor.
