Postpartum Mood

I just became a parent and I don’t feel like myself.  What should I do?

It’s normal to have times where you feel sad, overwhelmed, and stressed out when you have a new baby, so sometimes it can be tough to tell if mood changes are safe and will pass on their own, or if they are a sign that you are living with a postpartum mood disorder. 

If you haven’t been feeling like yourself and aren’t sure where to start, download the Postpartum Mood Disorder Check List to see if any of these symptoms resonate. If you’re not sure, book a free meet and greet or speak to your family doctor to explore diagnosis.

 

I have postpartum depression/anxiety and am processing the diagnosis. Can I get more information about it? 

There is no right way to respond to getting diagnosed. It is normal to be confused, angry, disappointed, embarrassed, or relieved.  Learn more by downloading out my Understanding PPD/A model and read more about where postpartum mood disorders come from here.
