Postpartum Therapy

Postpartum depression or postpartum anxiety can occur anytime in the first year after birth. It’s very common for mothers to worry about their newborn baby and new responsibilities.

However, some women affected by a postpartum anxiety and/or postpartum depression develop excessive feelings of worry and fear. Most of the time, postpartum depression occurs within the first 3 months after delivery.

Some women experience postpartum symptoms such as:

  • Sadness
  • Hopelessness
  • Low self-esteem
  • Feeling inadequate in taking care of the baby
  • Social withdrawal
  • Low or no energy
  • Becoming easily frustrated
