Today’s post is a video blog to briefly introduce maternal mental health and the need for more help and support if you feel you are experiencing the symptoms described.

Moms you are not alone, and you do not have to continue to tell yourself, “This is just motherhood.” About 20% of women experience postpartum mental health issues including problems bonding with their baby, overwhelming sadness and/or anxiety, problems eating & sleeping, and feeling like they are going crazy. These symptoms can begin anywhere between 0-12 months after baby is born.

With help, you can overcome these symptoms and feel better while forming a loving and lasting relationship with your baby. Watch the video below to learn more, and do not think it is weak, or you are less of a mom, reaching out for help. It takes a strong person to know when they can’t do it alone.
