Eating Disorders During Pregnancy and Postpartum
September 22, 9:00-10:30am
Pregnancy and postpartum can be a minefield of triggers for women with a history of an eating disorder or who are susceptible to these mental illnesses. Untreated eating disorders during pregnancy and postpartum present significant risks to both a woman and her growing family. Health professionals who engage with this population have a unique opportunity to better support these individuals and families through increased awareness of risk factors and the ability to offer appropriate interventions for treatment.
