Did you know depression is the #1 complication during childbirth?
1 in 8 new moms experience postpartum depression.
- Is motherhood not what you expected?
- Do you feel isolated?
- Are you overly concerned about your baby?
- Do you feel easily angered or quick to cry?
The initiation into motherhood is extremely difficult both emotionally and physically, and our cultural is lacking in how it supports new mothers. I can help you navigate this difficult transition and offer you the support you need to move through it.
Perhaps, you are afraid to voice the feelings and thoughts you are having. In your sleep-deprived state you may want to ignore it. Deep in your heart you know that what’s at stake is the quality of your relationship with your baby and your family.
I’d like to help you find balance during this time of change. It is the start of a lifelong relationship with your baby, and you deserve to be fully present. Depression robs you of the energy required to take care of yourself and your child. I want to support you in caring for yourself so you can do your best in caring for your child. Asking for help is a powerful first step.
Imagine the gift you are giving your child when you model how to care for yourself.
You don’t need to feel alone any longer. Call (818) 533-1531 to schedule an appointment or to join our support group. Remember, when you take care of yourself you are better able to care for those you love.
