This is NOT what you expected
Difficulty sleeping, worrying, troubling thoughts, panic, constant crying, feeling like a bad mother - none of this was included in the baby books.
I know this feels bad.
You won't always feel this way
And you do not have to suffer alone. I am here to listen and support. We will make a plan to get you feeling like your old self again. We will start slow and work at a pace that feels comfortable for you.
It is time to take care of yourself
It is not selfish or a sign of weakness to seek help - on the contrary. Seeking help shows tremendous strength and courage.
Babies and support people are welcome
You are welcome to bring your baby (~under 18 months) to the session. I would not want a lack of childcare to interfere with someone seeking help for postpartum depression. You may find the presence of your baby to be a distraction from our session, and in that case, if child care is available, it might be best to come alone. We can discuss this option during our phone consultation.
Some women also decide to bring a partner or other support person to the session. This decision is entirely up to you and whether or not you think it would be helpful. We can discuss this further during our phone consultation.
