A free workshop at Natural Resources Sept 9th: Postpartum Depression and Moods with Dr. Katayune Kaeni

Everyone keeps telling us that the birth of your baby is a joyous and special time, and that it is.  And our postpartum period (just like pregnancy) is a shifting, dynamic experience with our bodies and babies.  Hormones shift and life changes over night (literally!).  It’s a lot to process, and that’s saying it gently.  Baby blues often accompany our postpartum experience with up to 20% of new moms  experience postpartum depression (PPD) and/or postpartum anxiety (PPA) (Kaeni May 2012).  Mix the changes of life, hormones, new love affair, and heavy LACK of sleep is the perfect combination for intense feels – both good and bad.  But how does a mom know what’s normal or what’s not in the emotional “swing” of things.  How does one build support when baby blues is more that “normal” and how can a new mom prevent PPD/PPA? 

Dr. Katayune Kaeni, licensed therapist and mom, will be offering a free workshop on Postpartum Depression and Moods, helping clarify the difference between “Baby blues” and Postpartum Depression.

For more info check out Natural Resources (above link).  Also, below is a great article on this subject by Dr. Kaeni.
