Counseling for New Mothers

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

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.

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
