Postpartum Anxiety Therapy

In Charlotte NC

Every mom-to-be has worries — but if anxiety begins to overwhelm you, it’s important to learn how to control it or seek help.

Anxiety is not only part of being pregnant; it’s part of being human! Everyone worries about their lives, and pregnancy can often amplify those worries. Some women are mostly worried about whether their babies are healthy (previous pregnancy losses or fertility problems can make this an especially overriding worry). Others might worry about whether they’ll be good parents, how their relationships with their partners will change, how siblings will react to a new baby, or the financial aspects of having a child (and even if you worry about all these things, that’s normal too).

 

But there’s a difference between normal worrying and all-consuming anxiety during pregnancy. Please schedule an appointment with us if your experiencing any of the symptoms below: 

 

  • Unable to concentrate on your day-to-day life.

  • Having trouble functioning at work or home. 

  • Experiencing a frequent sense of panic, fear or restlessness.

  • Having obsessive thoughts. 

  • Are not enjoying things that used to make you happy.

  • Physical symptoms like dizziness, hot flashes, and nausea.

  • Disturbances of sleep and appetite. 

  • Inability to sit still. 

  • Racing thoughts. 

  • Feeling that something bad is going to happen

If you are unsure of the severity of  your symptoms please reach out for help, together we can help you work through this.
