The Counseling Process
I first learned about perinatal mental health when I hit a roadblock in my own life and struggled to move past it. In 2014, I embarked on the journey of motherhood. Being knowledgeable of the statistics of mothers that experience "baby blues" and postpartum depression, I I knew that wouldn't be me. And......I was wrong.
Everyday simple tasks were a challenge, crying became second nature, yet I refused to acknowledge that something was truly wrong. My emotions within the day would range from being excited, to sad, to angry, and even a little confused. Nevertheless, I looked past all the signs and pressed on.
After having my second child in 2018, I knew exactly how to prepare for what I knew was to come. Once again, I was wrong. I begin experiencing the same symptoms of frequent crying spells, low depressed mood, anxiety, mood swings, among many others. After realizing the effects it had on my nursing infant, family, and friends, I knew it was time to invest in my mental health.
