You deserve support during this difficult time of your life.
Are you not feeling like yourself? Do you feel anxious, sad, overwhelmed, guilty, exhausted or other difficult feelings? Are you experiencing stress on your journey to parenthood, in pregnancy, postpartum or beyond? If this sounds like you, you are not alone. While it is normal to feel overwhelmed and stressed at this phase of life, you may be experiencing a perinatal mood or anxiety condition. It is estimated that 1 in 5 women experience postpartum depression, anxiety or related mood disorder (PMADs).
What you are experiencing and feeling is not your fault. You are not to blame. With support, you can feel relief. Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders are treatable. Even if you don’t think you are suffering from a PMAD, you may need support as you adjust to your changing life.
It is important to not ignore what you are experiencing. You may be confused about what to do, or even if you need help. But if you are here, you are already on the right path. Talking about the challenges during prenatal, pregnancy, the postpartum time, and beyond, is critical to your health and well-being. You may still be trying to have a baby, and/or you may have suffered a loss, or are feeling anxiety or sadness during pregnancy and/or postpartum. One of the best ways to cope with how you are feeling is to seek support in therapy.
You deserve to feel well so you can feel like yourself again. Let’s work together to figure out what you are experiencing, and together, we will work on the path to healing.
