After having a baby, it can be common to feel sad or down. In addition to your healthcare provider, The Pacific Postpartum Support Society can support new parents who are facing mental health challenges. We’ve also gathered helpful resources for you here. Talking to a mental health professional who can guide you through this is critical to prioritize your safety and your baby’s well-being. Please know that you are not alone, help is available.
Disclaimer: Mental health is a sensitive topic that can be hard to discuss. If you feel distraught or have thoughts of hurting yourself or your baby, please seek support immediately. Call emergency services (911) or the crisis helpline (310-6789).
