Anxiety during the pregnancy and postpartum periods is thought to be even more common than perinatal depression, but it is rarely diagnosed and treated. Increased stress regarding employment, securing childcare, and access to resources in light of the COVID-19 pandemic have made the problem even more salient for health care providers and their patients. In this session, providers will learn practical skills for helping perinatal patients who are struggling with stress and anxiety, including brief intervention tools, medication management, and securing appropriate mental health resources in their region.
