Counselling New Mothers

banner image

For new moms, it can be upsetting and frightening to have feelings about motherhood that don’t seem “right.” Common postpartum symptoms include:

Feeling overwhelmed and wondering if you should have become a mother in the first place

Feeling guilty due to high self-expectations

Not feeling “bonded” with the baby

Your thoughts are racing and you can’t quiet your mind

Feeling empty and numb as if you’re just going through the motions

Lack of focus and concentration

Being afraid that if you reach out for help, others will judge your inabilities

Thoughts of running away or leaving your baby behind

Being constantly in a state of worry

For some women, a morning run, a healthy diet and receiving help and support from family and friends are sufficient enough to get through the initial adjustment period. For others, talking to a therapist who specializes in dealing with new motherhood issues can be comforting, relieving and enlightening.

Therapists who have extensive education and training in post-partum disorders understand that hormone changes, personal and family history, and social support are all vital factors in understanding and alleviating postpartum symptoms.

The investment of your precious time in treatment can actually shift how you experience your post partum journey … even if you still don’t get any sleep.
