Postpartum Depression, Anxiety and Psychosis affect 1 in 7, or up 15% of moms. Symptoms may include difficulty bonding with baby, persistent crying, severe depression and feelings of anger, hopelessness, loneliness and panic. Sometimes mothers experiencing postpartum depression have fear of being alone with their baby. Some mothers experiencing postpartum depression may even have thoughts of harming oneself or their baby and symptoms may arise up to a year following birth (versus the milder "Baby Blues" which typically resolve within 2 weeks of birth). At Postpartum Support Network we connect suffering mothers with the therapy, medication and support services they need to keep their family - and themselves - healthy and intact.
We have an incredible network of mental health therapists, physicians and nurse practitioners ready to help you through the challenges of postpartum depression.
We know that getting through postpartum depression can be truly difficult - for the whole family. We're here for you.
Part of reducing the stigma of talking about Postpartum Depression is public education. Through public events, printed materials and social media, we work hard everyday to bring the topic of Postpartum Depression into the light so it can be more easily identified and treated.
We will connect you to local counseling services provided by professionals that understand and treat postpartum depression.
We can also refer local moms to our network of nurse practitioners, OBGYNs and Psychiatric Professionals that may assist in determining if a mom may benefit antidepressant medication. If so, they will guide you through that process.
