services for Postpartum depression
Therapy sessions can provide a supportive and safe environment to discuss and address the emotional challenges associated with PPD. Therapists can help individuals develop coping strategies, modify negative thought patterns, and improve overall well-being. In some cases, medication may be recommended to help manage the symptoms of postpartum depression. In cases where medication is recommended, our therapists who specialize in working with PPD will refer you to a qualified and licensed prescriber. Antidepressant medications, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), are commonly prescribed. It’s important to consult with a healthcare provider who understands the symptoms and treatment of PPD, to discuss the potential benefits and risks of medication, especially if you are breastfeeding.
