 Coping with Postpartum Depression & Anxiety

Powered by RedCircle

When I had my first baby, I experienced post-partum anxiety. It was, without a doubt, the darkest time of my life. It is now 5 years later, and when I think back to that version of me in that dark place, I am increasingly afraid for her. 

Post-partum depression, anxiety, and related issues are so much more common than we realize, and on today’s episode, I’m speaking with Lauren Robbins. She is a therapist and Executive Director of Pregnancy & Postpartum Support MN.  

In this episode, we’re talking about the sensitive and important topic of supporting parents through their pregnancy, postpartum, and parenting years. If you are a parent, or if you know and love someone who is, you won’t want to miss this episode.

Those suffering from postpartum anxiety disorders can encounter physical symptoms including panic attacks and sleep deprivation. Feeling overwhelmed, mood disorders and panic disorders are just some of the mental health challenges many face in the postpartum period. While family members can be helpful, those with higher risk factors may want to consider cognitive behavioral therapy through a licensed professional.
