Support for Pregnant and New Mom’s Struggling with Depression and/or Anxiety

on Jun 20, 2017 in General Wellness, Mindfulness

BEING A MOTHER IS DISCOVERING STRENGTHS YOU DIDN’T KNOW YOU HAD AND DEALING WITH FEARS YOU NEVER KNEW EXISTED.

Bringing a child into this world can be an overwhelming experience both physically, mentally, and emotionally.  It is common for women to experience all these changes with at least some feelings of depression and anxiety. Some Mom’s will experience these feelings to an extent that it can become debilitating. Connecting with other expectant and new mother’s is comforting and the guidance of experienced counselors can help you cope and discover resources that are available to ease the transition into motherhood.

If you or someone you know is struggling with feelings of depression and or anxiety, please call or let them know that they are not alone and that Kaiser Permanente has support that can help.
