You Are Not Alone in Struggling with Pregnancy or Motherhood
One in five women experience maternal mental health conditions during pregnancy or the first year postpartum, according to the Maternal Mental Health Alliance. Even more pregnant or new moms are struggling with depression, anxiety, and overwhelm due to the many exhausting changes occurring in their lives.
Becoming pregnant, being pregnant, having a child, and adjusting to parenthood all have challenges. It can be a magical and wonderful time in your life, but it does not come without exhaustion, worry, stress, fear, and more. It is OK to be struggling with all of these changes.
If you are experiencing emotional changes and think you may be depressed, the best thing you can do for yourself and your child is to seek help. Most people find relief through therapy or counseling.
With Depression and Anxiety Treatment, you can feel more in control of your thoughts and feelings
There are a variety of effective treatments to help with prenatal, postnatal, and motherhood adjustment. Talk therapy can be a valuable tool. Sharing your concerns and struggles with a trusted mental health professional can help you to find support and coping tools for moving forward healthily.
Your mental health provider may encourage rest, extra help around the home, connection with other moms, self-care, and other outside help like lactation consultants. Other effective treatments may be used as well, including medication like antidepressants.
Anxiety and depression treatments, like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, may also be used. Through this treatment, you will learn how to recognize unhelpful thought patterns and behaviors and learn new ways to approach situations. Patients may learn mindfulness techniques to help keep them grounded during high-anxiety situations and other self-care rituals.
Everyone’s journey is extremely personal and unique to them. The counselors and therapists at Caring work with each client to determine the solution that will fit best in their life.
If you still have doubts and worries about treatment, here are some common questions and answers:
Do I have to share thoughts and feelings I am ashamed of?
You do not have to share anything you aren’t comfortable sharing. But, to get the most out of a therapy session, you must be open and honest with your provider. Sessions are confidential and a safe space for sharing. If a specific thought is causing you to feel negative feelings, then therapy is a great place to share those thinking patterns. Counselors can help to provide a new perspective about those thoughts and guide you towards healing.
Will the treatment be expensive and time-consuming?
Treatment is specific to your personal needs. Clients work with their therapist to determine a treatment plan that will work best for them. Many people find relief from symptoms after just a few sessions, while others find it helpful to keep a more regular and consistent schedule. That is a conversation you can have with your therapist.
