“I am supposed to be happy, right? Why am I so sad then?”
“I can’t sleep, I am so anxious!”
“I can’t hear the baby crying anymore. It makes me so upset!”
“I am a bad mother, a bad person”.
These are common complaints we hear from expecting and new mothers.
Unfortunately, maternal prenatal and postpartum adjustment and depression has been on the rise. Although much progress in the field of research and treatment has been done, there is still a stigma and expectations that new mothers should be blissfully happy.
What I see in new mothers who experience prenatal and postpartum depression could be:
As a former midwife, a maternal child nurse, lactation consultant, and facilitator of postpartum support groups for new mothers, I am heavily versed in the maternal-child field with experience that spans 40 years. As a counselor I am very familiar with what you are going through .I have seen this many times over. I empathize with you. In our meetings you will get the support and compassion that you deserve. We will focus on recognizing your feelings and identifying triggers that impact them. We will personalize your road map and empower you to learn best techniques for managing your challenges.
