Perinatal depression is depression that occurs during or after pregnancy. The symptoms can range from mild to severe. In rare cases, the symptoms are severe enough that the health of the mother and baby may be at risk. Perinatal depression can be treated.

Stillbirth grief support and infant death
UNITE, Inc., a non-profit organization, provides grief support following the loss of a baby, including miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth and infant death. UNITE recognizes that parents need to grieve following the death of their baby. Even when the child’s life was brief, parents feel the normal, painful, response of grieving. This can be particularly lonely when the baby was not yet known to family and friends.
