“What do I do while I wait to meet with a healthcare professional?”

  • If someone has offered to help you in some way, this is a good opportunity to take them up on a home cooked meal, babysitting services, keeping you company, or helping around the house.
  • Research PPD and PPA before you talk to the doctor, so you can ask specific questions and bring up any concerns.
  • Think about what you’re going to say and even write down key details you don’t want to forget.
  • Get peer support. Talking with other moms who have been there may be just what you need to make it until your next appointment.
