Maternal Mental Health Counseling
Most new moms experience postpartum “baby blues” after childbirth, which commonly include mood swings, crying spells, anxiety and difficulty sleeping. Baby blues typically begin within 2-3 days after delivery, and may last for up to two weeks. But for at least 20% of new moms, a more severe, long-lasting form of depression (known as postpartum depression, or PPD) can occur.
It’s not a character flaw or a weakness. Sometimes it’s simply a complication of giving birth. Prompt treatment can help you manage your symptoms and help you bond with your baby.
