About 1 out of 5 or 6 women, new mothers, will experience something more severe than the regular baby blues. They will have postpartum depression. That's a pretty high statistic. The good news here, is that it is 100 percent treatable, as is all the postpartum mood disorders, but postpartum depression can absolutely be treated. We go for 100 percent with my clients. We go for getting herself back. As a matter of fact, I always ask my clients, "Would you like the old self back or would you like a better self back?" Because it is very easy, during the therapy process, that you can release a lot of stuff. You can emerge from this crisis, better than when you started it.
