Postpartum Depression

You are more than a mother. You are a woman who is managing the overwhelming emotions that come with being a parent.

You’ve just given birth to your child. You thought you would feel nothing but elation and happiness.

You expected to feel overwhelming joy, love, and excitement for this new life you created. But instead, you’re feeling overwhelmed, alone, and exhausted.

You might even be wondering what is wrong with you.
You may feel exhausted from a lack of sleep and feeling anxious about your baby’s health and well-being. Or, you’re having irrational fears and worries that are taking over your everyday life. You know this isn’t how you thought it would be. You want that feeling of happiness and elation that you were expecting.

How Can Postpartum Treatment Help?

It’s hard to make the transition into parenthood. It can often come with many challenges and difficulties. It can be hard for any mother or parent. Your whole life is changing before your eyes, and it can be tough to manage everything on your own. Postpartum treatment can help give you support and validation during this tough time. It will allow you to heal and learn to connect with yourself again. Postpartum anxiety treatment and postpartum depression treatment can help you navigate these difficult times and help you find joy and elation in this new life.

Why People May Seek Out Postpartum Treatment

 After having a child, mothers face transitioning into a new role with many other demands. This transition can be difficult. Sometimes people need help to cope with the new challenges of motherhood.

Here are some reasons:
  • Feeling overwhelmed
  • Wondering what is wrong with them
  • Feeling exhausted and hopeless
  • Feeling alone
  • Irrational fears and worries

These are only some of the reasons someone might seek out postpartum treatment. You may feel like you can relate to one or more of these. Or, you may instead want guidance and support to help you through this transition.


Our Therapists Can Help You With Postpartum Treatment 

Our team has worked with many women who have gone through postpartum difficulties. It’s important for you to know that you’re not alone. Many of our clients have started postpartum treatment thinking that something is wrong with them. They felt lost, and hopeless, and struggled with making the transition into motherhood. But with the support of our therapists, they were able to take small steps to heal and find hope. They were able to connect with themselves again. Which left them feeling peaceful and overwhelmed. You can feel this way too.

Together, we can help you start living a more meaningful, fulfilling, and connected life.

With postpartum treatment, you will learn healthy boundaries and good self-care practices. For example, you will learn how to say “no” to demands that are not realistic or healthy for you. You will learn healthy coping skills and feel more strong and more capable to handle whatever comes your way. Most importantly, you will feel more connected to yourself and your baby.

Our Approach to Postpartum Treatment in Gallatin, TN

Our approach to postpartum treatment is to provide you with validation and support. We will let you know that we are here to support you but that you aren’t alone in this. A postpartum therapist from our team will help you understand that it’s normal to need support during this transition. We will work together to help you manage your emotions and thoughts more positively and healthily.
We approach this by using Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT). REBT is a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy that helps people manage their emotions. It will help you focus on helping you understand and change the thoughts and beliefs that are causing you pain. For example, you may think, “I’m a terrible mother; I can’t do this.” In this case, REBT will help you challenge and change that thought.

We do this by using compassion and empathy. We help you access your “wise brain” to help you manage your overwhelming emotions. This helps you feel more in control, which can lead to feeling more peaceful. At TN Mental Wellness, we see mothers for a majority of this treatment. But we also work with partners. No matter what, when you’re finished with postpartum treatment, you will walk away with coping tools to manage your emotions. You will also feel more confident in your parenting skills.
