How Counseling Can Help You Through Postpartum Depression
Jun 04, 2020
After 35 plus weeks of
caring for your baby through your body, you finally gave birth to a
beautiful, healthy baby. All is well. So, why are you so unhappy?
Logically speaking, you should be happy. But, you can't help
but to cry sometimes. You ask yourself, do I have Postpartum
Depression? Possibly. There's no need to worry, however. You're not
the first woman, that's given birth, to feel this way. And, you will not
be the last.
Working through these
issues on your own can be really tough. You feel guilty for being sad.
And, everyone has the right to feel secured in their emotions,
especially negative emotions. Because coming into motherhood
has been glamorized by the movies we see, and many other things, we tend
to feel shame if we experience any emotion other than pure happiness
for our new bundle of joy.
You need someone on your
team that will not only acknowledge your troubles, but will help you
come through this dark time. Counselors can help you understand the
sometimes conflicting emotions associated with childbirth.
We understand how to navigate the waters of a new addition to the
family. Hormones are raging. Between a contracting uterus, trying to see
just how much breast milk to produce, and bonding with the baby, the
brain has a lot to deal with.
You don't have to feel
misunderstood, or alone. We are waiting with open arms. We will help you
get back to the way you were before the trauma, which is the proper
term used to describe childbirth. We have counselors
awaiting your call. They can help you find your groove amongst the
chaos. So, contact us for
more information on PPD and to get started on a plan of care.
