Postpartum is a huge transition that often requires support and additional resources. I feel passionate about families having positive transitions of having a child or adding to their family. My hope is that this may help you and your family during this amazing, but sometimes difficult time. It is known that around 15% of women will experience a postpartum mood disorder; many experts actually believe this number to be up to 25% as many women suffer without seeking help. Postpartum mood disorders are common and many of the people around you have suffered from them. Please seek out help and support!
If you or your loved one are experiencing hallucinations, pyschosis, considering self harm, or harming others call 911 immediately.

Take the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale here. This is a helpful self assessment for postnatal depression, it is not a diagnosis and if you are concerned about postpartum depression, anxiety or other disorder, please seek a professional assessment immediately.
