While everyone thinks having a baby is an incredibly happy time, the vast majority of mothers – and some fathers – go through a short, emotional period known as the baby blues. Sometimes, mothers experience much stronger feelings of sadness and depression over an extended period of time. This low mood is sometimes referred to as postnatal depression.
We can offer you a range of interventions to help manage this type of problem. Our psychoeducational courses can help you to learn more about the condition, discover the underlying reason of your low mood and explore methods and techniques to help you cope and overcome your low mood.
