Post Natal Depression
THE CHALLENGE OF MOTHERHOOD because sometimes it doesn't feel as wonderful as it was promised to be.
1. TOO MANY SLEEPLESS NIGHTS - leading to total exhaustion and depression
2. BEING OVERWHELMED BY FEELINGS OF SADNESS AND DESPAIR
you have lost the person you used to be
3. FEELING INADEQUATE and unable to cope with your baby - their crying goes right through you.
4. FEELING DEPRERSSED, FULL OF ANXIETY, SOMETIMES EXPERIENCING PANIC ATTACKS
life has lost any meaning
YOU ARE NOT ALONE
1 in 7 to 10 mothers suffer from post natal depression.
Help is available - don't suffer in silence
I offer a place to think that is not judgemental. I am here to listen to what you have got to say, and what feelings dominate you at the moment and the difficulties you feel overwhelmed by.
I have worked with depressed mothers for many years. I can assure you that whatever you tell me I have heard before - in other words you are not alone and you are not going mad (a fear I have heard many times from mothers who come to see me)
