Why is mental health ignored in pregnancy?

Depression and mental health problems, such as anxiety, affect 10-15% of all pregnant women. Left untreated, these conditions can have lasting effects on the emotional and physical health of both mother and baby. Nonetheless, the information and support provided to pregnant women on physical wellbeing far outweighs that offered on mental wellbeing. Diagnosis and treatment of mental health problems is less likely to happen during pregnancy than any other time.
