We are talking about Postpartum Anxiety today and more specifically, what’s common and what’s cause for concern and treatment. This is a question that moms have so often and I’m happy for Dr. Carly Snyder to come on and dispel some of the confusion. We touch on the ever present guilt and shame that runs its course through motherhood as well as some ways to cope and manage postpartum anxiety. Some of what we touch on: - What is "normal" anxiety in new motherhood - How can people know when it's becoming more difficult or a clinical issue? - What kinds of anxiety might a mother experience - What you can do to begin feeling better Connect with Dr. Snyder here: Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/CarlySnyderMD Twitter - @CarlySnyderMD Dr. Carly Snyder is one of a small cohort of medical physicians in New York City specializing in reproductive psychiatry.

Thank God for Dr. Kat!!!
I've listened to the first 3 podcasts by Dr. Kat and Shoshana Bennett and cannot tell you how relieved I was to hear them talking so openly about all this. My story mirrors almost exactly Dr. Kat's when she shared her story in the "My Postpartum Story" podcast, with the difference being that I've always dealt with anxiety, depression, and some intrusive thoughts my whole life. But my depression and intrusive thoughts became worse after having each of my kids (and so did my mood swings!). Even though my kids are 3 and almost 5, I am finally figuring out what has been happening to me since becoming a mom. And that I don't choose to have these feelings! And that I am a good mom! And that I am not alone anymore! I thank God for crossing my path with Dr. Kat and can't wait to catch up on the other podcasts!!! Because Dr. Kat had the courage to share her story, I now feel I have the courage to share my story to help other moms too. I am truly grateful for Dr. Kat's work.
