WE TAKE THE GUESSWORK OUT OF PSYCHIATRY

Having a baby is supposed to be a joyous time, but postpartum depression can suck the joy out of being a new parent.

It’s natural for mothers to experience bouts of sadness, known as the “baby blues,” after giving birth. But when feelings of hopelessness and unhappiness don’t dissipate for weeks or months after the arrival of your new baby, it is time to seek help. When left untreated, postpartum depression can disrupt the critical bonding period and have lasting effects, including delays in infant development, and an increased risk of depression and anxiety in the infant later in life.

Mothers (and fathers) can feel ashamed of their condition and often view it as a personal failure. It’s very important to understand that postpartum depression and perinatal mental health disorders are real, and they are rooted in biology—dramatic hormonal changes, genetics, and overall brain function can play a part in the condition.

We understand. Struggling with postpartum depression can cause feelings of despair, and traditional treatment with antidepressants may not work. In part, this is because postpartum depression isn’t a simple or single disorder. One size does NOT fit all. Treatment that works for one person won’t work for everybody, and it could even make you worse! It’s also important to understand that antidepressants can be secreted in breast milk, so you need to be thoughtful about treatment.
