Postpartum Depression Resources in AZ

 

Note: this is a listing of publicly available groups, not a personally vetted list of groups

 

PPD affects approximately 12 - 20% of women in the first year postpartum.  Many women may suspect they have PPD but be reluctant to seek help because they feel ashamed or guilty.  This can make the mom feel isolated and more depressed and she may even try to hide her feelings from those who can help her most.  Though a personal or family history of depression is a risk factor, even women who have no history of depression can develop PPD.  It can develop gradually and the mother may have both “good” and” bad” days.

 

Some signs of PPD include:

  • Insomnia or sleep disturbances

  • Sadness, depression, feeling hopeless

  • Change in eating habits

  • Excessive/uncontrollable  crying or irritability

  • Feelings of not being a good mother, feelings of guilt or inadequacy

  • Fatigue or exhaustion

  • Difficulty concentrating or memory loss, confusion

  • Excessive concern for baby’s well being

  • Lack of interest in your baby

  • Fear of “losing control”

  • Lack of interest in your partner/sex

  • Fear of harming the baby or yourself
