Postpartum Therapy

Having a baby is supposed to be a joyous time in your life, but for women suffering with depression it can become very distressful and difficult. Up to 80% of women will experience some kind of "baby blues" or an emotional reaction that begins a few days to a week after delivery and generally lasts no longer than two weeks. About 10 to 15 percent of new mothers experience clinical depression, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). If you have the blues, you may be weepy, anxious, and unable to sleep. You may also feel irritable or moody. Moms often feel better after getting some rest and a helping hand with the baby. But if your blues – or those of someone you love – have lasted more than two weeks, extra support may be called for. Postpartum therapists are specially trained to give that support. Reaching out for that extra assistance may be the best thing you do for you or your baby.
