Postpartum and Motherhood is a challenge… not everyone experiences bliss; it takes time…Postpartum anxiety can happen at any time in the first 12 months following childbirth. It is reported to affect about 1 in 5 new mothers. Postpartum anxiety, depression, and OCD are even more common because new families don’t know what to expect, and our support systems are removed from our community. Limited postpartum clinical visits and multiple baby appointments often leave mamas isolated, exhausted, and confused from lack of sleep. Our providers don’t always ask or know where to send us for support. As a provider and mother, I plan for the unexpected. I don’t believe in a waitlist, and I make every effort to meet with mamas as soon as necessary to support the family and “exhale” you are not alone.
Mothers are under intense pressure to fall in love instantly, know everything about caring for an infant, and maintain unprecedented social standards.
Motherhood can be a great transition, but many of us are grappling with challenges in secret. Counseling can help transition, recover, renew, and accept this new direction. Individual sessions are weekly or biweekly based on your needs and availability.

Some women experience depression, anxiety, altered family and social relationships, and emotional and physical symptoms of grief. Those who experience such distressing symptoms often reach out to others for support and comfort.
However, many perinatally bereaved women have reported that their grief was not adequately recognized by friends or family members, leaving them emotionally isolated.
