Having a baby is an exciting, joyous, and happy time. Therefore, creating a new life and bringing a new baby into the family is depicted as a positive time. Despite this, it is not uncommon for it to be a challenging and difficult time as a new baby enters the home. During and after childbirth, women go through many changes including changes in hormones, physical appearance, emotional health, and relationships with others. Finding Postpartum Depression Therapy can help make the process more healthy.
After childbirth, it is common to experience what is known as the baby blues. The baby blues are characterized by mood swings, feelings of sadness and feeling overwhelmed for a few days or weeks after childbirth. Postpartum Depression or PPD are symptoms similar to the baby blues, but are more intense, frequent, severe and often require treatment. Hormonal changes and physical changes during and after childbirth and the increased stress of caring for a baby play a significant role in the development of PPD. The strong feelings of sadness, anxiety, and disconnection can make it difficult for new mothers to care for themselves and their new baby. This is where postpartum depression treatment center programs at Harmony Bay Wellness can help!
