If you’ve had a baby within the past year and constantly struggle with feelings of anxiety and guilt or feeling overall less present, happy, and engaged in your baby’s life than you had expected, you might be dealing with post-partum depression.

As moms, we often prioritize everyone else before ourselves and we power through overwhelming levels of stress to care for our babies … but what are we gaining by living this way? And more importantly, what are we losing?

Your mental health is just as important as your baby’s physical health - and even directly affects it.

Post-partum depression is more than just temporary “baby blues” or feeling sad.

Post-partum depression is actually characterized by things like intense anxiety, panic attacks, and the unshakeable sense that we’re doing everything wrong, as well as the loss of interest in things, lack of energy, and generalized depression.

If these symptoms sound relatable, please know that you don’t need to struggle through these first few precious months and years with your newborn; help is available!

It’s even possible that you could get back on your feet with significant and lasting relief from post-partum depression within a few days. (Zurzuvae(TM) is a new medication that is taken for only 2 weeks; many mothers have experienced relief from PPD symptoms in as little as 3 days. See more details about this treatment option and links to further information at https://www.excelpsychiatric.com/ppd.)

Check out these PPD symptoms and solutions - then we’d love to connect with you and help you take control of your wellbeing. You (and your baby) deserve it!

At Excel Psychiatric Associates, we provide mental health care in a holistic way. This means we provide traditional psychiatric care, like diagnostic evaluations and medication management services, but we don’t stop there! We pride ourselves on viewing and caring for you as a complete person.

At Excel Psychiatric Associates, we:

✔️ Offer appointment slots that are longer than the industry standard so we can take time to listen to you and your unique life story.

✔️ Educate you so you really understand your care and become a true partner in your mental-health care journey.

✔️ Discuss lifestyle changes and improvement strategies, therapy types and modalities, and available medication options.

✔️ Work together as a team to come up with a treatment plan that best fits you.

“Most helpful psychiatrist office I’ve ever been to. Dawn and Pat have been so helpful since I’ve started here and the NP, Timothy Balisky, is so compassionate and understanding and gives the best explanations and when I don’t completely understand what he’s saying he will explain it to where I can understand. I’ve never left a psychiatrist office feeling so much better than I did when I went in until I came here. Could not recommend this practice enough!! So efficient!”
– M. M.
