Mom Matters: Treating Maternal Mental Health and Finding Joy

The postpartum period is a wild ride for most moms, even in the best of circumstances. Reasons new moms struggle during this period include sleep deprivation, lack of support, hormonal issues, isolation, financial stress . . . the list goes on and on. For many women, this time of life also brings up confusion around identity (Who am I now? Am I still who I was before?), which can be extremely hard to navigate alone.  Our Maternal Mental Health Program was designed to help women manage the transition into motherhood. We provide evidence-based treatments to help support growth and healing and to help new mothers access moments of joy.

How to Know if You Need Help

There is absolutely no shame in seeking help. Sometimes mothers can feel like “this is just what being a mom is like.” While it’s true that some parts of pregnancy and parenthood are inherently very difficult, that does not mean you are required to suffer alone. You may want to seek support if you are struggling with:

  • adjusting to being a parent
  • anxiety/depression
  • burnout
  • guilt
  • loss of identity
  • intrusive thoughts
  • low ability to function

Taking care of yourself is selfish . . . in the best possible way. If you feel like it’s selfish in a bad way, think of it like this: what will make you the best mom you can be? Neglecting your physical, mental, and emotional needs will not make you a better mother. You and your child both have needs that must be met in order for you both to function and thrive. It is very hard to find the balance, but we are here to help.
