Postpartum Depression and Anxiety

Pregnancy and a new baby cause some women to feel anxious, sad or overwhelmed. For many, these feelings go away on their own, but for some these symptoms may result in a serious condition known as postpartum depression. Researchers believe that 1 in 8 women experience postpartum depression or anxiety.

Depression or anxiety around pregnancy or birth can make you feel:

  • Sad, irritable or angry without warning
  • Like you are simply going through the motions of life rather than living
  • Anxious around your baby and other children
  • Guilty or like you are failing at motherhood
  • Robbed of the ability to take joy in things you used to enjoy

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, know that you are not alone. You can depend on Centerstone to provide an array of services and resources that will help you to recover, including:

  • Open Access assessments that give you the flexibility to come in to any of our offices from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday-Friday, to start the recovery process
  • Counselors who specialize in working with mothers and families as they navigate new and difficult experiences
  • Groups that will allow you to connect with other mothers who are experiencing depression or anxiety around pregnancy or birth
  • Information for loved ones who are supporting you or who may be struggling with the changes that a new baby brings
