What is perinatal depression?

Perinatal depression is a depressive disorder that occurs during pregnancy and is often an early indicator of postpartum depression, which occurs after the child is born. The symptoms of perinatal depression are similar to those of postpartum depression and include mood shifts, changes in behavior, bodily changes such as fatigue or loss of appetite, cognitive difficulties, depression, fluctuations in weight, and difficulty sleeping or resting.
