Common postpartum experiences include:

  • Feeling overwhelmed and wondering if you should have become a mother in the first place
  • Feeling guilty due to high self-expectations
  • Not feeling “bonded” with the baby
  • Wondering if the baby would be better off without you
  • Racing thoughts and an inability to quiet your mind
  • Feeling empty and numb, as if you’re just going through the motions
  • Lack of focus and concentration
  • Being afraid that if you reach out for help, others will judge you
  • Thoughts of running away or leaving your baby behind
  • Being constantly in a state of worry

Reach Out to Connect With Us.

If any of the above resonates with you, we invite you to contact us today for a free consultation. 

Our perinatal therapists, such as Maria Benavent, have extensive education and training in perinatal psychology and post-partum transitions. We understand that hormone changes, personal and family history, and social support are all vital factors in understanding and supporting the transition to motherhood.

We are social mammals - we were not meant to raise our young in isolation. And you don't have to do this alone.
