THERAPY FOR POSTPARTUM
More common than you think.
The birth of a new baby can trigger many emotions. Many mothers feel deep shame when they find that they are filled with depression or anxiety and not the joy they thought they would experience from their newborn.
While postpartum depression affects one in seven women, we now know that postpartum anxiety is actually three to four times more likely to affect mothers.
Though postpartum depression and anxiety are very common, many mothers do not seek help out of fear of being judged or, even worse, having their child taken away.
You are not alone. You are not a bad person. You just need support during this very difficult transition.
