After a birth, getting the “Mommy Blues” can be serious, not only in how it affects the Mom, but also because it affects the baby. This type of depression causes a host of symptoms, including extreme anxiety, diminished self worth, exhausted energy levels and a myriad of other issues. Psychologists treat something like this as “Post Partum Depression”.
New mothers experiencing mommy blues also are filled with apathy and self reproach. If a mother experiences “the blues” for a couple of days, that is different than the extenuating circumstances and symptoms of full on postpartum depression.
Immediately after birth, hormones are out of whack, and it does take some time for them to get back in order. If you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms of this type of depression after a few days, then it’s time to get help.
Have you heard of hypnotherapy? Before you dismiss this as a viable option, you should know that hypnotherapy is often misrepresented.
Did you know that as many as 10 percent of all women actually suffer from postpartum depression? If you have more than one child, that ups your chances of experiencing symptoms. Hypnotherapy can allow a trained professional to have a look inside your brain so to speak to help change the situation.
Identifying triggers for your postpartum depression is key to overcoming the condition. One of the worst feelings that stems from postpartum depression is when the mother feels as if she is not able to be the mother she needs to be. It is hard to overcome that narrow way of thinking.
Postpartum depression, a clinical condition, requires psychological treatment and medication to overcome in many cases. Therefore, why not see how hypnotherapy can help a person uproot triggers for symptoms and move forward with a healthy life and raising the baby.
Many horror stories have existed in the past about women who suffered from postpartum depression and symptoms were not addressed. Mothers have harmed their children, and it’s very sad. That is why it’s very important that postpartum depression symptoms are identified and dealt with properly.
Hypnotherapy can help women deal with stress symptoms in a way that they are not able to do on their own. It is a very positive approach to coping with emotional issues and stress that can arise for many mothers after supporting a baby for nine months and giving birth.
