In its on-going attempts to define, understand, and categorize disorders, and determine the best treatments, the medical specialty of psychiatry is always up against the protean complexity of the human brain.Both biological factors and environmental factors contribute to symptoms of distress, and the role each plays varies from person to person. Both psychotherapy and drugs are effective for most psychiatric disorders, and often a combination of the two works best.
Psychiatry offers you hope. It works towards the realization of your potential and dreams. It makes what is probable possible. It is not about some vague unconscious desires or madness. It can help you to cope with everyday life.

Post Pregnancy Body Changes
Ever had a ‘phantom kick’ when you’re not pregnant any more, or did you find your bath full of hair after giving birth? Parent dish asked mums how their bodies changed after birth, and found there’s all sorts of post-pregnancy body weirdness nobody tells you about.
No one ever talks about these, but many mothers recognise them. They’re little flutters and kicks in the womb, just like you have mid-pregnancy. The only thing is, you’re definitely not pregnant any more – so why do you still feel like there’s a baby kicking away occasionally?
