Counseling for Postpartum Anxiety & Depression in League City, TX

 WI Thought Being a Mom Would be More Fun.

It Shouldn’t be This Hard.

 

For many women, the thought of having a baby is a joyous time. We scroll through baby photos on Facebook and Instagram, longing for the days we can share our own pictures. A quick trip to Target sends our hearts fluttering as we walk by aisles of baby clothes and toys. However, in reality, the experience for some women can be very different.

For the 10% of women who struggle to conceive, the pictures and clothes are a constant reminder of what you don’t have. The pregnancy announcements from friends and family break your heart just a little bit more each time. After a few months, your thoughts turn inward, wondering what you’re doing wrong. Did I eat the wrong foods? Do I need to lose weight? What’s wrong with my body?

For those who are able to get pregnant, a new set of struggles may immerge once you bring the baby home. Tears of joy turn into tears of sadness and overwhelm. Doubt and worry set in about your ability to be a mom, questioning every decision you make. All of these symptoms can be attributed to the baby blues, but when is it more than that? 

Asking for Help Doesn’t Mean You’re Failing.

I want to show you that it doesn’t have to be like this. It’s ok to call your best friend and cry over the phone. It’s ok to ask your partner to put the kids to bed, so you can get some extra sleep (they won’t get the hints you keep dropping). It’s ok to take time for yourself ~ and you should!

I want you to know that I am here to walk with you through your journey and to support you. To let you know that you’re not alone. I am also here to challenge you and to help you succeed.
