Postpartum anxiety affects about 1 in 10 mothers during or after birth. Postpartum anxiety is the second most common mental health disorder experienced by mothers following the first year after childbirth.
Some signs that you may be experiencing postpartum anxiety include:
- Intrusive thoughts or racing thoughts
- Shakiness, heart palpitations, nausea, insomnia: feeling “revved up” all the time
- Suffering panic attacks
- Constant worry and/or edginess
- Feeling that something bad is going to happen
If you suspect you might be experiencing postpartum anxiety we suggest that you seek help from your doctor and a mental health professional. Postpartum anxiety is very treatable and we have therapists available to support you in developing strategies and coping skills to overcome your anxiety.
