“What’s wrong with me? I haven’t been myself since my baby was born…I feel like I am going crazy, why can’t I just pull it together?”
Having a baby is supposed to be the happiest time in a woman’s life. However, for many women, the arrival of their new baby also brings the most stressful and anxiety producing life transition that a woman will ever experience. It is not unusual for new motherhood to bring a wide range of intense feelings during the first year after birth. For one out of five women, these feelings may develop into post-partum depression (PPD). If you are one of them, please know that you are not alone and there is help available for you.
PPD is a common and treatable condition with symptoms and you should not blame yourself. It is not your fault. You may be suffering from some of the following symptoms:
Society tends to focus only on the positive aspects of becoming a mother. The idea that the birth of a child is a wonderful time makes it difficult for women to admit to problems after the birth. Unfortunately, due to guilt and shame, many new moms suffer in silence. New mothers often feel scared, anxious and alone.
If you believe you or someone you know is experiencing depression/anxiety during pregnancy or after the birth of a child, help is available. Dr. Cherwony provides emotional and mental support, as well as educational information for pregnant and postpartum women and their families, facilitating the transition from pregnancy to parenthood. Dr. Cherwony will work with your OBGYN or midwife to coordinate treatment care.
Dr. Cherwony also works with parents in helping them adapt to a new lifestyle and finding their balance between parenthood, work and overall wellness. Please call for an appointment at her Boca Raton or North Palm Beach office.
Thank you for the consultation and wonderful service. We were very anxious about getting our daughter tested for gifted placement.
Dr. Cherwony, you made our experience an easy and valuable one. As promised, you spent extensive time
with us helping to determine the best school placement for our daughter.
The feedback we were given was worth every penny!
Thanks again. - Marie D
Dr. Cherwony, you have been an angel in my life. When I first met you at my pre-surgical bariatric evaluation, you told me that food was my addiction and to think about what I was trying to hide from. Your words rang true for me after my surgery and then I realized I needed to see you.
I want to thank you deeply for all your compassion and support during my journey to health and wellness. I can't believe how
much you have taught me. - Lindsay C
My only regret was that I waited 2 months before starting to see Dr. Cherwony. I struggled with depression and loads of guilt following the birth of my first child. It was not how I had expected it to be. It was the most devastating time for me. Thank you so much Dr. C for helping me to understand and deal with my PPD and insomnia, and for helping my family to deal better with myself. - SR
