  • Therapy for New Mothers

    It can be upsetting and frightening for new moms to have feelings about motherhood that do not seem “right.”

    A morning run, a healthy diet for some women, and receiving help and support from family and friends are sufficient to get through the initial adjustment period. For others, talking to a therapist specializing in dealing with new motherhood issues can be comforting, relieving, and enlightening.

    Therapists who have extensive education and training in postpartum disorders understand that hormone changes, personal and family history, and social support are vital factors in understanding and alleviating postpartum symptoms.
