Your Mental Health

You’ve likely heard that low mood, blues or depression can settle in even when the arrival of a baby may seem like it’s supposed to bring only positive emotions. Fortunately, we are all helping to create more space for open, vulnerable and needed sharing on this topic. Even though it can be quite common, there may be factors inside of you, your culture, tradition, values, and circles of connections, where speaking up may require additional strength and courage. No matter your circumstances, there is help available. The Pacific Postpartum Support Society is a valuable resource for new parents experiencing anxiety, depression or other emotional challenges during the postpartum period. Along with their support, we’ve carefully gathered these useful resources to help you through this time. If/when you’re feeling big emotions, we hope you’ll be able to reach out to your provider to get the support and care you need.
