Pregnancy & Postpartum Depression

Whether you’re currently expecting or you’ve delivered a baby within the past 12 months, you may have pregnancy or postpartum depression if you can identify with any of the following:

Feeling…

  • Completely overwhelmed by being a mom and you just don’t think you can do it
  • Regret of becoming a mom in the first place or fear you made the WRONG decision to have a baby
  • Confused as to why this is happening to you
  • Anger or rage toward your baby or others around you
  • Disconnected or numb to what’s happening around you—you just don’t feel like yourself anymore
  • Sad and guilty you’re missing out on your baby’s first days/weeks/months
  • Like a mess, crying nonstop even for no apparent reason
  • Fear that you will never be yourself again and things will never get better
  • Like you are a terrible mother unworthy of your child
  • Unable to eat or eating way too much
  • Restless at night and unable to sleep when your baby is sleeping
  • Tired all the time and unable to stay awake
  • Forgetful, unable to concentrate, or foggy-brained
  • Like you want to end it—you’ve had thoughts about hurting yourself or the baby
