Client Story

Sue became involved in the counseling program due to severe postpartum depression.  She was referred by her OGBYN for counseling after the birth of her second child.  By the time Sue began counseling, her symptoms of depression were so severe that she was physically unable to leave her home.  The first several counseling sessions had to be conducted in her house.  The depression that Sue experienced was consuming, and she struggled with caring for herself, bonding with her child, isolation, and negative thoughts about herself.

After several sessions, Sue finally began to open up to her counselor and began to practice mindfulness, self-care, and other coping skills, such as journaling.  Her counselor was also able to introduce Sue to some bonding activities, such as baby massage, to help her feel more connected to her child.  After several months of counseling, Sue saw a drastic decrease in her depressive symptoms and began to truly enjoy motherhood – something she had hoped for from the beginning.
