“Postpartum” is a time frame not something you have or don’t have…
Postpartum is a term you may hear thrown around a lot:
“But, I don’t have postpartum. I don’t want to harm my baby.”
“When my sister had her kids, she had postpartum really bad.”
“My cousin is really struggling with postpartum.”
The word postpartum actually refers to the time frame immediately after giving birth and up to babies first birthday.
What someone can have a perinatal mood disorder (and 1 in 7 women do have one).
This includes but is not exclusivley limited to:
Postpartum depression and/or anxiety
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
SUPPORT SERVICES FOR NEW MOMS
I say BE BRAVE, BE HONEST. Please, trust me when I say you are not alone and it doesn’t have to be this hard.
IMAGINE having the courage to ask for support, even if you haven’t received an official diagnosis (and especially when you have).
For the past decade I have guided over 300 women (just like you) into overcoming their anxiety and fears. Some who have not received an official diagnosis and some who have. The women who don’t have a diagnosis have self assessed that they just “don’t feel right” and want to be proactive with their maternal mental health (instead of reactive).
By the end of your sessions with me you will know your worth, be more confident in your mothering and will have gained tangible coping skills. Telling the truth (even if it’s ugly, especially if it’s ugly) is incredibly freeing, empowering and transformational.
“But, how will I know when I need support?” ⠀
Seeking help if you need it (and even when you don't "need") is as simple as checking in with yourself. Do you already have an urge to seek professional support services? My guess is because you’ve landed here that’s a pretty good sign you’re looking (and likely needing) support.
Seek the help you feel like you need! Book your free 30 minute consult (phone, video or in person) today.
Connection is key to coping with motherhood.
