This is part 2 in a 6 part blog/vlog series with former client and Postpartum Anxiety expert, Gennifer Morley, M.A. L.P.C., of North Boulder Counseling. When she asked if I would be interested in recording a series on the topic of Sleep Deprivation & Anxiety, I didn’t hesitate.
One of the subtopics around postpartum mental wellness that I knew we needed to discuss was the difference between the “Baby Blues” and postpartum depression. Click on the image below to hear the discussion we had. My favorite takeaways are:
1 – What are “micro-sleeps” and what to do if you are experiencing them.
2 - What’s the difference between “baby blues” and true postpartum depression?
3 – How to navigate the change in identities when transitioning into motherhood and parenthood.
We have 4 more episodes planned on the topic of how sleep deprivation can cause or compound anxiety and other mental wellness challenges in parents, especially mothers. We’re going to give you tips on how to help yourself, your partner/friend and where you can reach out for professional support. We’ll discuss the symptoms and the resources available to help.
This is worth capitalizing and bolding: SHE CAN DO REMOTE SESSIONS, FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR HOME AND WIFI CONNECTION. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to her.
I’d love to hear from you on this topic. If you have a question you’d like us to address, please leave a comment below or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
Take care of YOU, mama!
