Starting Postpartum depression counseling

What is Postpartum depression counseling?

Postpartum depression counseling is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on treating individuals who have given birth and are experiencing clinically significant symptoms of depression in the months after giving birth. This condition is often a result of the drastic hormone and life changes that occur after childbirth.

How does Postpartum depression counseling work?

To treat postpartum depression, Thriveworks Peachtree City therapists will use common approaches for depression treatment like cognitive behavioral therapy, while keeping in mind the hormonal changes and added stress that come with giving birth and taking care of a child. The approaches used are often tailored to the client in order to make treatment as effective as possible. Psychotherapy may also take place alongside the use of antidepressants or other medications.

Is Postpartum depression counseling conducted in person or online?

Thriveworks postpartum depression counseling in Peachtree City, GA is conducted both in person and virtually via online counseling. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Postpartum depression counseling last?

Postpartum depression counseling can last for a few weeks, months, or longer, depending on the severity of one's depression as well as their needs and preferences.

Sydney and Austin tried for years to have a baby—but time after time were unsuccessful. Fortunately, however, they found success in their fifth year of marriage. Their excitement was at an all-time high. They obsessed over their visions of the future with their beautiful baby girl who was due in just a few weeks.

Finally, baby Aubrey was born. But instead of celebrating this milestone and reveling in the joy they expected to experience, Sydney and Austin were overwhelmed by negatives. Sydney didn’t feel like herself after giving birth, nor did she feel like the strong mom she hoped to be. She felt sad, hopeless, worthless, and generally uninterested in caring for her newborn. And Austin, confused, concerned, and fearful of the future.

“Postpartum depression is a very real and very serious problem for many mothers. It can happen to a first-time mom or a veteran mother. It can occur a few days… or a few months after childbirth.” –Richard J. Codey

While Sydney dealt with symptoms of postpartum depression, Austin did his best to stay strong and support his wife. But times proved hard for both of them. The good news is they realized there was a problem and sought professional help. You can do the same. If you’re experiencing symptoms of postpartum depression or think you might have this condition, reach out to Thriveworks Peachtree City. Our counselors can help you navigate this tough time, manage these harmful symptoms, and live a happier, healthier life.

What Are the Symptoms of Postpartum Depression?

Postpartum depression is a serious mental health condition that makes women (and, in some instances, men) feel sad, hopeless, and/or worthless after having a baby. These new moms often feel a disconnect from their newborn or aren’t interested in caring for the baby at all. Additionally, they experience other symptoms such as:

  • Insomnia
  • Loss of energy
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Fatigue
  • Suicidal thoughts

These symptoms also make up the criteria for other forms of depression, like major depression. That said, postpartum depression brings with it other feelings and symptoms specifically related to caring for one’s baby:

  • Being unable to care for one’s baby
  • Having little interest in one’s baby
  • Feeling scared of spending alone time with one’s baby
  • Having other negative feelings toward one’s baby

How Can Counseling for Postpartum Depression Help Me?

Postpartum depression, like every other illness, can be scary. However, the right treatment can help you better understand what you’re experiencing and manage your symptoms. If the above symptoms sounded familiar or resonate with you, reach out to Thriveworks Peachtree City. We can set you up with a counselor who is experienced in postpartum depression counseling. Your counselor will ultimately customize your treatment to your unique situation, but you can expect to discuss the following:

  1. Your thoughts and feelings: Your counselor will ask you about how you’ve been feeling and what kind of headspace you are in. It’s important you open up exclusively about these thoughts and feelings so they can best understand your symptoms and how to help.
  2. Your behavior: They will also want to know about how you’ve been acting. Are you experiencing a big dip in energy levels? Have you been neglecting self-care? What about caring for your baby? Open up and be honest in answering their questions.
  3. Your hopes for the future: Another important topic is where you hope to be in a few weeks, months, or even years down the road. What is your version of an ideal future? How do you see yourself moving forward from here?

In sum, your counselor can best help you by first understanding your thoughts and feelings, behavior, and goals in therapy. Then, they will design treatment to help you manage the harmful symptoms of postpartum depression and reach these therapy goals.

I have known Stephanie for over six years and worked side by side with her in a mental health center for part of that time. What comes across first and foremost is her caring and concern for her clients and her determination to see that their needs are met. She brings to her work a wide range of experience and training along with confidence that is reassuring and a comfort to those in distress. She can deal calmly with the most severe issues as well as with problems of daily living. In the time that I've known her, she has been licensed in three different states to practice in a variety of settings. If you come to her in a time of need, in a time of emotional upheaval or difficult questions, I don't think you will find a more competent or more caring therapist.
