We are talking about Postpartum Anxiety today and more specifically, what’s common and what’s cause for concern and treatment. This is a question that moms have so often and I’m happy for Dr. Carly Snyder to come on and dispel some of the confusion.

We touch on the ever present guilt and shame that runs its course through motherhood as well as some ways to cope and manage postpartum anxiety.

Some of what we touch on:

- What is "normal" anxiety in new motherhood

- How can people know when it's becoming more difficult or a clinical issue?

- What kinds of anxiety might a mother experience 

- What you can do to begin feeling better
