Need a therapist recommendation

So although I have been happily posting pics and sharing milestones, I have also been crying every day and I feel horribly alone and overwhelmed. I have been having breastfeeding troubles and am seeing a Lactation Consultant and we are making progress but I still can't shake the sadness.

Anyone have any good recommendations of therapists who handle postpartum depression?

Lots and Lots of hugs to youChat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon I dont have any recommendations but do you think if you called the hospital where you delivered they might be able to point you in the right direction? I Am sure they must have someone they could refer you to as this is something that affects a lot of moms.

I hope things get better for you soon and you get the help you need.Chat Icon

Re: Need a therapist recommendation

I'm sorry you're having a tough time. The hospital I delivered at had a New Mom's Support Group and a program called Transitions to Motherhood. I took the Transitions program and it was so great to meet other moms in the same position I was in. I didn't have PPD, but did feel overwhelmed many times and this program helped me tremendously. It was the best thing I did. As far as a therapist, I would ask your doctor or even DD's pediatrician for a recommendation.

I hope things get better.

You have FM.

Many hugs to you- I had a very hard time with extreme anxiety at first and it was awful. Its so scary being a new mom and extremely overwhelming. Adding the breast feeding troubles,(which I had too) makes it even harder.

It will get better- definately get someone to help you.Chat Icon

Re: Need a therapist recommendation

I wouldn't be so quick to jump to PPD. I think that is usually diagnosed after 2 months because of your wacky hormones right now. I suggest getting out and to some support groups such as LLL or some hospitals hold BFing support groups. I know how you feel because I went through the same thing when I was having trouble bfing. The best thing to do it get out and about and to be open with your feelings. It doesn't hurt to inquire about a therapist but it may not be necessary.

Re: Need a therapist recommendation

There is a BFing support group that turned out to be a good new mom support group as well offerred through S.Nassau but it's held in Baldwin on Grand Ave. The same LC Nurse also does a group at Winthrop too. That would probably help in the meantime.

Re: Need a therapist recommendation

I would stick it out a little longer, like the others said your hormones are going crazy BUT I know a therapist in Westhampton Beach that I went to a while ago, while I was preggo, not after though, she deals with depression. FM if you would like her name and number.


Hugs to you! I too felt so overwhelmed but I adjusted soon after, it does take a while, be patient and don't be hard on yourself !
