Congratulations! Isn’t this just the best time of your life?! You must be so happy! These early moments are so precious!
Sound familiar? Are you hearing these words from your friends & family and not really feeling “right”? Are you struggling with how you “should” be feeling and how you actually are feeling about being a new mom? Well, you are not alone! Many women (at least 1 in 7) experience some form of postpartum stress, anxiety, and mood disorders.
The bad news: this feels pretty terrible right now. You’re not sleeping, you’re feeling sad/lonely/anxious, you’re not feeling very connected to your baby and who is that person you’re living with? Oh, that’s your partner! Remember him/her? It can be tough on the marriage too!
The great news: THERE IS HELP! This is not something you need to struggle with alone and, with treatment, you will feel better! Your mood will improve, your relationships will improve, you will feel like “you” again!
It takes an incredible amount of strength and courage to stand up and say “I’m not feeling right and I need some help”. When you’re ready to take that leap, I’m ready to catch you!
