Manasthali Provides Vital Support for Young Women with Pre-existing Mental Health Disorders During pregnancy

New Delhi, 18th July 2023:- Manasthali, a leading mental health organization, is proud to announce its successful provision of providing vital mental assistance to a young woman with pre-existing mental health disorders during her pregnancy. The organization has dedicated a special set of team of mental health professionals and counselors, who will work tirelessly to ensure the well-being and overall mental wellness of the expectant mother so that she can navigate the challenges associated with pregnancy and manage her existing mental health conditions effectively.

During pregnancy, women often experience a range of mental disorders that can significantly impact their well-being. One common mental disorder is prenatal depression, characterized by feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a loss of interest in activities. Hormonal changes, physical discomfort, and concerns about motherhood can contribute to its development. Additionally, anxiety disorders, such as generalized anxiety disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder, may arise during pregnancy, leading to excessive worrying, fear, and intrusive thoughts. Hormonal fluctuations, worries about the health of the baby, and adjusting to the changes ahead can contribute to anxiety.

Another mental disorder is perinatal/postpartum anxiety and depression, which can affect women during and after pregnancy. These disorders can be influenced by a combination of biological, psychological, and social factors, including hormonal changes, previous mental health history, and lack of support. It is crucial to raise awareness about these disorders, provide proper screening, and ensure access to mental health support to help women navigate this critical phase of their lives and promote the well-being of both mother and child.

“Pregnancy can be a joyous and transformative time for many women, but it can also present unique challenges, especially for those with pre-existing mental health disorders. Recognizing the need for specialized care, Manasthali has stepped forward to provide comprehensive support to this young woman, acknowledging the importance of maintaining her mental well-being during this critical phase of her life,” said Dr. Jyoti Kapoor, Founder-Director and Senior Psychiatrist, Manasthali.

Manasthali’s team of experienced mental health professionals tailored a personalized care plan to meet the specific needs of the expectant mother. Through a holistic approach, they offered a range of services including counseling sessions, therapeutic interventions, and educational resources to equip her with the necessary tools and coping strategies. The aim was to empower her with the resilience and skills required to manage her mental health effectively throughout the pregnancy journey.

The organization also collaborated closely with the woman’s health specialists, ensuring seamless communication and coordination of care. By fostering a collaborative approach, Manasthali facilitated the integration of mental health support into her overall prenatal care, promoting a comprehensive and well-rounded approach to her well-being.

The young woman, Ms. Tulisha Sengupta (Name Changed) expressed her gratitude for the unwavering support she received from Manasthali. She stated, “I am immensely grateful to Manasthali for standing by me during this challenging time. Their guidance and expertise have made an incredible difference in my ability to manage my mental health and navigate the complexities of pregnancy. I now feel equipped to embrace motherhood with confidence.”

Manasthali remains committed to its mission of providing accessible and inclusive mental health services to all individuals, irrespective of their circumstances.
