Yourself & Your Family:
A baby needs happy, satisfied parents.
Are there things you enjoy but haven’t done since baby arrived? Get back to them now! Set aside time to be with your partner by getting a babysitter. Spend some special time alone with the baby’s older siblings. Maintain your hobbies, interests, career, etc.
It is normal and very common for parents to feel depressed, anxious, and overwhelmed. It may seem hard to cope with a screaming baby and you may even feel as if you’re about to lose control. Help is available. Call us or call:
