Peripartum Stress Program

Feeling blue or stressed during or following a pregnancy is common and does not create serious problems.  However, 15 – 20% of women experience something more called Postpartum Depression.  Symptoms of PPD may include

  • Constant worry
  • Changes in sleeping and eating
  • Low mood and fatigue
  • Feelings of being overwhelmed
  • Low self esteem
  • Feelings of isolation
  • Feelings of guilt

Discuss this at your first Well Baby check-up, or with your Ob-Gyn practitioner.  Every other Wednesday, twice monthly, 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. – drop in.  Call 408-972-3095 for more information
