Are you feeling sad, overwhelmed, anxious during pregnancy or after the birth or adoption of a child?
An estimated 1 out of every 6 women experiences troubling depression or anxiety after the birth or adoption of a child. This is referred to as postpartum depression and anxiety (PPD/A) and can be a tremendously stressful time for the family. PPD/A is often characterized by despondency, emotional instability, anger, guilt, tearfulness, worrying, anxious thoughts or images, feelings of inadequacy and the inability to cope. It may occur shortly after the arrival of a new baby or many months later. For some women, symptoms may begin in pregnancy. If you are experiencing any symptoms, and your youngest child is younger than three years old, please call.
