Healing Postpartum- Your Mental Health Resource Guide

Healing Postpartum- Your Mental Health Resource Guide

Aug 16, 2021

One of the biggest joys in life is bringing home a new baby. A child to love and nurture and watch grow before your eyes… it’s truly a gift! But for many mamas, the postpartum period can bring about the baby blues, postpartum stress syndrome, overwhelm, and so much more.

For immediate help call:

Postpartum Support International (English and Spanish available): 800-944-4PPD (4773)

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) (available 24/7): 800-950-6264

 

The first step to start healing? Asking for help. Whether it's admitting to yourself, or talking to your partner/family, this first step can be the most difficult.

Join Majka Co-Founder, Lorena and Mysha Co-Founder, Marika as they discuss how you can ask for help from your loved ones.

 

 

 

Got to any section:

 

.Postpartum Focused Therapists

First and foremost, professional help is key. 

No matter the severity or frequency of your blues, getting professional help is the best (and often most effective) way to work through what you’re feeling. 

When it comes to finding the right doctor, look for therapists who specialize in the postpartum period. These doctors can provide resources and actionable tips for working through this time and coming out of it feeling stronger.


.Breastfeeding Support Groups

A strong community of mamas can make a world of difference in making us feel supported, loved, and heard! Consider joining a local breastfeeding support group to meet with other mamas, share relatable experiences, and navigate this new journey together.



.Parent and Baby Bonding Classes, Support Groups

The same thing goes for classes or groups. Mommy &  Me groups or other baby bonding classes can be a great way to meet fellow mamas and families, and also escape the chores and stress of at-home life for an hour or two!


.Go Beyond a Face Mask Self-Care Tips

Just like you take care of your little one, you need to take care of #1 (you!). After all, you cannot pour from an empty cup (we’ve all tried). 

Though we know it’s easier said than done, really make an effort to carve out time for yourself. Something as simple as enjoying a bath or practicing your other favorite self-care habits can make a huge difference in lessening the overwhelm. 


.Mom and Baby Sleep Support and Professional Guidance

For many mamas, sleep (or a lack thereof) can be a huge stressor. Too much of it, and you feel guilty for “neglecting” other things. 

Not enough, and you feel like a zombie who can barely get through the day. For most of us mamas, we struggle with the latter. If that’s you, implementing effective practices can be a great way to put a focus on the very thing that will give you the most energy — sleep! 


.Postpartum Nutrition Classes & Blogs

Your wellness is another key area that shouldn’t be ignored postpartum. Your body needs proper nutrients to recover after growing and delivering a baby! Kid snacks and leftovers aren’t going to cut it long term. 

A postpartum nutrition class is a great way to learn exactly how to nourish your body to heal!

 

.Finding Postpartum Doulas

Working with a postpartum doula is a wonderful way to ease into motherhood with support and guidance. 

Postpartum doulas can help with everything during this new period, from breastfeeding your baby and navigating motherhood emotions to providing parental educational resources and helping you ease and transition into your new chapter.
