The anticipation of a baby.
The attempt to get pregnant.
The anxious nine-month wait to meet your little one.
Baby arrives. But it’s not what you expected.
You’re not as excited and happy as you thought you’d be – you’re exhausted.
You’d much rather be alone and sleep than spend time with baby.
You’re sad, worried.
Guilt sets in.
All the “shoulds” creep in.
“Should” be happy.
“Should” be grateful.
“Should” feel excited.
“Should” want to be with the baby.
Instead, you’re conflicted. All you do is cry. What’s wrong?
Something’s not right.
You chalk up your sadness or constant worry as the “baby blues” caused by drastic change in hormones. It’ll go away soon.
But the “Baby Blues” won’t go away.
Instead, you’re growing more and more disconnected, sad, anxious. Scary thoughts invade your mind. You’re trapped: you couldn’t wait to have a baby, and now you don’t even want to be around your child.
You’re right. Something’s just not right.
You’ve developed some type of a Postpartum Reaction, a Postpartum Mood or Anxiety Disorder, which can range from the mildest Baby Blues to the more serious Postpartum Psychosis.
These are the more common types of Postpartum Reactions:
It’s the Baby Blues that did not go away in a couple of weeks. It magnified to debilitating proportions.
But you’re not alone.
One in eight moms develops some type of a Postpartum Reaction, and it’s curable with the right type of treatment.
Anxiety symptoms are very common during pregnancy and after giving birth. They can appear alone or along with depression.
You worry uncontrollably – that you’ll make the baby sick, harm it if you’re not hypervigilant about details, obsess that something you did during pregnancy may have already hurt the baby or that it may be deathly ill.
Postpartum Panic Disorder
It affects 1 in 50 women.
You can’t seem to stop worrying. You’re disturbed by heart palpitations, shortness of breath, hot or cold flashes, shaking, dizziness, and fear of losing control. You may even fear you’re going crazy.
Postpartum Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (POCD)
Affects 1 in 50 women.
The horrible thoughts keep running through your mind. Something awful is going to happen to your baby. Even worse, you think you may be responsible.
That can’t happen. You can’t hurt your baby. So, you’re avoiding. It’s all you can do.
