Postnatal Depression – Use this gentle, permissive hypnosis session to get you through this difficult period.
It’s an awful thing to experience depression at any time but postnatal depression can be particularly difficult because of your new arrival.
Extreme exhaustion, apathy, tearfulness and self-reproach and guilt go hand in hand with the experience of postnatal, also known as ‘postpartum’, depression.
Postnatal depression is not the baby blues
It’s important to distinguish between the ‘baby blues’ which usually lasts only a few days after the birth and is experienced by many new mothers largely because of hormonal changes and ‘proper’ postnatal depression.
Baby blues lifts quickly once hormonal balance is restored and sufficient rest is gained.
Postnatal depression is different from the baby blues and affects about 10 % of new mothers. The depression often starts after the mother has been discharged from the hospital.
Causes and contributing factors of postnatal depression
Some women who suffer postnatal depression don’t have the support network around them that would help ease their situation. However they can still come out of the depression quickly and start to feel much more able to cope again.
Many women who experience postnatal depression doubted their own ability to be a good mother before they gave birth. Others found their baby difficult to ‘connect’ with and felt depressed because of that.
The more depressed they become the less they feel connected with the baby and so a ‘vicious circle’ formed.
Escape the illusions depression creates
Depression makes us think in narrow and blinkered ways. When you relax deeply you have the chance to gain access to the part of your mind which can think clearly and produce much healthier and more positive feelings.
As you start to feel better all your relationships will improve, not just your relationship with your baby.
Remember all mothers recover from postnatal depression. As your recovery proceeds, the bad days get fewer and less upsetting and the good days increase. Gradually the bad days will disappear completely.
Imagine how it’s going to feel when you can start to get proper rest and feel lively and optimistic again. Depression can start quickly and it can also start to lift quickly and once you learn more about it you can start to keep it away for good.
