Postpartum Depression Therapy

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 newborns. This is where postpartum depression treatment center programs at Harmony Bay can help!

Postpartum Depression, or PPD, often comes with the following:

  • Helplessness
  • Sadness
  • Depressed mood
  • Overwhelmed
  • Hopelessness
  • Crying spells
  • Worthlessness
  • Disconnected from self and/or others

Those with PPD may struggle to connect with their baby or have thoughts of hurting themselves or the baby. If you or a loved one are experiencing any of the above symptoms, you are not alone. PPD affects more than 3 million people in the United States per year. Postpartum depression is not the fault of new mothers. It is a medical, mental health condition that requires treatment to get better

What To Expect

Medication regimens may be considered for those struggling with PPD.
