Post-Partum Depression

Post-partum depression affects many new mothers. After the birth of a child, mothers are expected to be bathed in golden light, sure of their first steps into motherhood, positively in love with their child. But if you or someone you love is suffering from post-partum depression, these expectations can feel like a millstone. Symptoms of postpartum depression include feeling empty, emotionless, or pervasively sad for longer than two weeks during or after pregnancy. If you or your loved one have been experiencing these symptoms, know that help—and hope—are more than possible: they are here waiting for you. Our therapists partner with new mothers to create a treatment regimen to mitigate and gently release depression, revealing the life you dreamed of when your child was created. You can and will get better. The first step is getting help.
