Perinatal care

At Re-centre, we have dedicated specialists who can help you understand your mental health condition and help you choose your treatment and care.

Women are four times more likely to experience depression during their reproductive years. They are at a higher risk of occurrence of emotional challenges during hormonal changes, such as during pregnancy and postpartum.

Around 1:6 women experience postnatal depression, even more can experience anxiety.

Without care, this can affect the mother-baby bonding relationship.
