Postpartum Depression — Part 2

In Part One of this blog, I discussed how the experience of postpartum depression can be difficult to discern from the experience of parenting a baby. In this post, I will discuss various resources and strategies for support.

Resources:

  1. Support groups — groups online and in person; Postpartum Support International is a good resource to find local or virtual groups.

Strategies for Managing:

  1. Acknowledge the issue to yourself and trusted confidants. You don’t need to suffer in silence.

If you are unable to care for yourself or your child or are experiencing thoughts/urges to hurt yourself or someone else, please seek help immediately from a trained mental health or medical provider.
