BRING YOUR BABY TO THERAPY: ART THERAPY FOR POSTPARTUM WELLNESS
Having a baby is an experience full of simultaneously overwhelming emotions: love, joy, exhaustion, and worry. Sometimes those emotions are overpowering and become a dark cloud over the time you are spending with your baby. You may hear all around you that this is a time to be treasured, yet feelings of fear, sadness and at times even numbness can overwhelm your senses. Getting help for postpartum depression, blues and sadness can be difficult if you cannot bring your baby with you. At Acutoronto our therapist and registered nurse Talia will see you with your baby at your appointment. Talking to a professional as well as creating some art work with your baby can help bring you and your baby to a calmer mental place in a non-judgmental environment.
