POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION COUNSELING
"This is an illness that takes away a woman's ability to access joy...right at the time she needs it the most"
Your body and mind go through many changes during and after pregnancy. Do you feel a sense of emptiness? Do you feel emotionless and sad? Do you feel like you don’t love or care for your baby? If these questions have resonated with you, then you could be suffering from postpartum depression.
Something to keep in mind:
You are not going through this alone. Depression is a common problem after pregnancy as 1 in 9 new mothers experience postpartum depression. It is important to look at the severity of your symptoms and how long they have lasted. Many women have the “baby blues” in the days after childbirth and they typically go away in 3 to 5 days. With postpartum depression, the symptoms last longer and are more severe. If you feel that you are suffering from postpartum depression, then Anchor Counseling is the perfect haven to help get yourself back on track.
