Postpartum Depression & Anxiety Therapy in Connecticut & Virtually

What is Postpartum Depression?

While having a baby can be an incredible and life-changing experience, it can also be overwhelming and anxiety-producing. Postpartum Depression is when a mother becomes depressed or increasingly anxious following childbirth. Postpartum Depression typically arises from the combination of hormonal changes and the psychological adjustment and demands to motherhood. We support women, couples, and families with the understanding of Postpartum Depression and how to support their loved ones when Postpartum Depression and Anxiety hits the household. We then particularly support the new mom in individual therapy to get back to themselves.

Navigating Motherhood as a New Mother

Becoming a mother for the first time can be overwhelming. Here are five steps to help you navigate motherhood:

  1. Take care of yourself: It’s important to prioritize your own physical and mental health. Get enough sleep, eat well, and don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it.
  2. Build a support network: Surround yourself with people who can offer emotional and practical support. This can include family, friends, and healthcare professionals.
  3. Learn as much as you can: Read books, attend classes, and talk to other mothers to learn about infant care, breastfeeding, and postpartum recovery.
  4. Trust your instincts: Every baby is different, and there’s no one “right” way to parent. Trust yourself and your ability to make decisions that are best for your family.
  5. Take it one day at a time: Motherhood can be challenging, but it’s also incredibly rewarding. Remember to enjoy the small moments and take things one day at a time.
