Studies indicate that up to 1 in 5 women experience mental health problems during pregnancy or in the first postnatal year. The impact of such issues can be profound, not just on the mother, but also on the child’s development. In light of these facts, Manasthali’s initiative towards providing specialized mental health support to pregnant women, especially those with pre-existing conditions, is truly groundbreaking.
When a young expectant mother with pre-existing mental health conditions approached Manasthali, she was met with a dedicated team of professionals ready to assist her. They devised a personalized care plan encompassing counselling sessions, therapeutic interventions, and educational resources. This comprehensive and collaborative approach is an exemplification of best practices in the mental health sector.
This recent case shines a light on the importance of integrated healthcare during pregnancy. Dr. Jyoti Kapoor, the Founder-Director of Manasthali, has been instrumental in driving this initiative forward. As more organizations like Manasthali continue to prioritize mental health in prenatal care, we can look forward to a future where no woman has to navigate the complexities of pregnancy alone.
