Using Affirmations for Postnatal Depression

Using Affirmations for Postnatal Depression

Affirmations for postnatal depression are a gentle and loving way to help yourself heal during what can be the hardest period of your life.

Postnatal depression, also known as postpartum depression, can leave a new Mum feeling depressed, anxious, worthless or overwhelmed. They may have feelings of dread, thoughts of suicide or poor bonding with their baby. A horrific condition, a previous history of depression can be a contributing factor, as can having low self-esteem, money worries, having limited support or being young. The reality is though, postnatal depression can affect any new Mom or Dad.
