Postnatal Depression Counselling in Caulfield

Helping You Enjoy Parenthood One Day at a Time

The birth of a baby can be a stressful time and can cause depression if there’s not enough support. Postnatal depression is serious and without help you can harm yourself and your baby.

When experiencing postnatal depression, you may have feelings of self-loathing, an inability to bond or accept your baby, and in severe cases suicidal thoughts.

Without help you and your baby will both lose out on the quality time you can spend together. Did you know what postnatal depression is the leading cause for infant death within the first year after birth?

This is why it’s important to seek help immediately when postnatal depression begins. You don’t have to feel alone. There is help and support available to help you overcome your postnatal depression.
