We grew up learning that having a baby is a magical experience. The last thing we expect to feel is exhausted, panicked, or sad after the baby comes or even before the baby comes. These feelings, and others like them, can be signs that you may be suffering from the “baby blues” or pregnancy or postpartum depression (PPD). You are not alone – one in seven of us experience these emotions and we need help to feel better.
We are here to offer information, support, and resources to help you start feeling like yourself again. If you need help or just want to talk with someone, please call us at 913-677-1300 or 1-866-363-1300, in Kansas and Missouri. We accept calls 24/7 so please do not hesitate to call at anytime day or night.
