How We Help
Postpartum depression (PPD) is thought to be a combination of both physical and emotional issues.
Significant alterations in hormones occur after birth. Specifically, estrogen, progesterone, and thyroid hormones decrease dramatically. This may lead to physical symptoms of brain fog, fatigue or exhaustion, despondence, sleep disturbances, hopelessness, severe mood swings, social withdraw, and depression. Emotional issues may arise from sleep deprivation, poor nutrition, feeling less attractive, loss of control, loss of identity, and anxiety. Any of these issues may contribute to PPD.
Depression results in physical changes in the structure and function of the brain, and the longer you suffer the more damage results. Therefore, recognizing the signs and symptoms of PPD and getting help fast is critical to rapid improvement. The wonderful thing is that it is frequently much easier to treat postpartum depression than life-long depression of unknown origin.
Our integrative approach to medicine addresses your mind, body, and spirit to help you break this cycle quickly. We may recommend a variety of therapeutic interventions such as medications, lifestyle management techniques, ketamine infusion therapy, nutritional counseling, and talk-therapy.
