#Podcast - My prenatal depression - with Elise Marcende

#Podcast - Ma dépression prénatale - avec Elise Marcende

What exactly is prenatal depression? In this podcast, Elise Marcende, president of the Maman Blues association, tells us about her journey into motherhood. In the collective imagination, pregnancy is synonymous with a feeling of fulfillment, serenity, joy and happiness as you await your newborn.

But this is not the case for all women. For some, pregnancy is a psychologically and physically trying time, fraught with anxiety and doubt, sometimes leading to depression. This is what Elise Marcende tells us in this new episode of your podcast La Famélia.

How can happiness sometimes give way to fear and anxiety? What can be done about it?

Are we really well prepared for the role of mother? Is it linked to hormonal change? Is it dangerous for the baby? Are we really well prepared for the role of mother?

Today, Elise Marcende talks to us about a subject we still hear too little about: prenatal depression. Or how pregnancy can be experienced as a real upheaval, becoming a real source of stress and anxiety, and ultimately proving to be a painful period.

All too often, the mother's emotions are overlooked in favor of the joy and excitement that pregnancy is supposed to generate. Ditto at birth, where the focus is on the baby's well-being, rather than the new mother's psychological health.
