Postpartum depression counseling

Hormonal changes, acute exhaustion, and the psychological adjustment to everything that comes with being a new mother frequently induce depression after giving birth. Whether it’s the baby blues, postnatal distress, depression, or birth trauma, therapy can be an effective tool in reducing symptoms.  Postpartum depression counseling can involve a combination of therapies depending on the severity of the symptoms. 

Counseling is just as effective as antidepressant medication in treating milder kinds of postnatal depression. Psychotherapies such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) or cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) help new mothers live meaningful and values-aligned lives while enhancing their psychological flexibility. Counseling teaches them how to deal with both the joys and difficulties of life without needless strain. A therapist may use both group and individual counseling therapy approaches to reinforce building connections and developing coping skills.

Emotional side effects of postpartum depression

Many mothers feel overwhelmed when a new baby comes home so changes after pregnancy can cause symptoms similar to those of depression. Some women prefer not to discuss their symptoms with their partner or friends. When a new mother is unhappy when she should be happy, she could feel embarrassed, ashamed, or guilty, and they may think others might perceive them to be bad mothers. 

It is common for women to experience depression in their pregnancy or after childbirth. Symptoms include feeling disconnected from their newborn, crying a lot, not showing interest or love towards the baby, and having psychosomatic symptoms. Sometimes mothers may have thoughts about harming their children, which is a sign that therapy is needed. Counseling, support groups, and medication may be used for treatment.

How PPD counseling can help?

Counseling for postpartum depression is an effective approach to treating postpartum mood and anxiety disorders. Psychotherapy can be used to understand, work with, and treat symptoms of postnatal depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress. PPD counseling can employ interpersonal psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, or other solution focused therapies. The goal is to reduce symptoms, gain insight into the source of distress, learn how to control harmful thoughts and actions, and modify underlying beliefs that are irrational. 

Group therapy is also effective in educating mothers about the disease, and its causes, and members can learn how to develop wellness techniques. Group therapy is crucial for validation. Mothers can connect with other women who are going through the same experience. The ability to parent can be significantly reduced if postpartum depression is not treated.

I was recommended by a friend who said this place has helped her a lot. I was hesitant because of my experience with previous psychiatrists. But Janice is great. She really pays attention to my concerns, and I have been feeling such a sense of well being since having serviced with her. She is also extremely consistent. Sometimes our session lasts about 20 minutes or less because I hardly have any concerns regarding my medications. I appreciate her ability to really prescribe things that help long term. She also prescribed sleeping meds for my insomnia and I been sleeping earlier and better. I don’t wake up tired of weak. Thank you Janice 🙂

I have seen many many psychiatrists and Dr. Natalie Rimar is really as good as they come in this field. She is very well versed in the medical field and she gives you the time and attention every patient deserves as opposed to just going to any psychiatrist them giving just 5 minutes of their time and saying ok will RX you XYZ medication I sent it to your pharmacy goodbye. Dr. Rimar actually cares about her clients and takes her profession very seriously. Thank you Again!

I met with Mary Parker, a nurse practioner. She was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. After asking questions about my history, she discussed different treatment possibilities. I was happy with the session and look forward to meeting with her again on a regular basis
