Postpartum Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) | Motherhood Understood


This video breaks down the symptoms of postpartum post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Mamas, we want to remind you that you are NOT ALONE. You did nothing wrong. This is NOT your fault. You did NOT cause this. You deserve to feel well. You don’t have to sit in your suffering any longer. Postpartum PTSD is temporary and treatable with the right professional help.

Please note, the postpartum period technically lasts for one year after delivery, but we say it doesn’t matter when or how long after delivery it’s been. If something feels wrong, you feel like you are not okay, and are worried about your mental health, it’s important to see a professional right away.

All videos have been reviewed by Lisa Tremayne, RN, PMH-C, CBC, Director of The Monmouth Medical Center for Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders and Founder of Non-Profits: The Bloom Foundation for Maternal Wellness and the Maternal Health and Wellness Network.

The information provided in our videos is not medical advice and is for educational purposes only. If you or someone you know is experiencing depression or anxiety during pregnancy or postpartum, contact the Postpartum Support International Helpline at 1.800.944.4773. If you are thinking of harming yourself or your baby, get help right away by going to the nearest ER, calling the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1.800.273.8255, or dialing 911.
