Counselling for Post Natal Depression (PND)

Counselling for Post Natal Depression (PND)

Coping with the change

It is a huge change becoming a parent for the first time and also after each newborn child. While your newborn brings much joy to the immediate and extended family, there will undoubtedly be times when the going gets tough. As time moves on, particularly during the first 12 months after your newborn has come home, it is recommended that parents take some time to nurture themselves.

After your baby has arrived, life continues to go on regardless. There is not always the time to adjust before we find ourselves facing life’s challenges. When things become increasingly difficult and when you feel all is not as it should be, or perhaps the support is not available to you, it then may be time to seek further support to help smooth this journey.

Depression Counselling may assist by providing you with –

  • a safe and non-judgmental place to talk
  • support
  • parenting strategies and tools
  • the treatment and assessment for Post Natal Depression (including referral to a psychologist if required)
  • help to find and connect you with the right services for you
  • supported referral and follow up to other service providers

What is Post Natal Depression (PND)?

According to Beyond Blue, Post Natal Depression (PND) has the same signs and symptoms as depression. Women with PND can experience a prolonged period of:

  • low mood
  • reduced interest in activities
  • tiredness
  • disturbance of sleep and appetite
  • negative thoughts and feelings
