Caring for Yourself
Life with a new baby is wonderful, but it can also be unpredictable and demanding – making it difficult for you to look after your own needs and emotional wellness. We are here to help.
If you are experiencing negative emotions as a new mother, either towards you or your baby, you may have a perinatal mood disorder, perinatal anxiety, or both. Christiana Care offer support to women suffering with these and offers a comprehensive program available to you during pregnancy and after delivery. These disorders are very treatable, and you can recover.
Before you leave the hospital with your newborn, a behavioral-health specialist is available to meet with you to discuss how you are coping with motherhood. This specialist can assess your emotional and mental-health needs.Speak to us
