Hey, I am new to this group! I I am currently on a search for building up a medical support team for baby number #2. With my first son I experience postpartum psychosis and extreme anxiety and paranoia. I am looking for a OBGYN and Psychiatrist and Dual in the Orlando area that is knowledgeable about Postpartum Psychosis. Anyone have a good doctor you enjoyed working with?

Dads need support too! Did you know Postpartum mood disorders can affect Dads too?

As we have mentioned before, Dads need support in the postpartum period too. One in 10 new dads experiences paternal postpartum depression (50% when mom is depressed!).

Whether you are a dad trying to support a partner or you think you may be experiencing a perinatal mood or anxiety disorder, we are glad you are here. We want you to know that you are not alone and that by getting the right kind of support, you will get better.

PSI has resources available for Dads! https://bit.ly/2Sv1Yhi

Great resource for Dads!

San Diego based expert psychologist for men, couples, fathers, families and children Danny Singley is hosting a training for Expectant Dads!

Expectant fathers enjoy an informal, hands-on class that provides practical information and a real boost of confidence about handling the baby's impending arrival.

Participants connect with other expectant dads, and also have the opportunity to talk with a “veteran dad” who has been through the class and brings his infant with him to the class. Dads-to-be get to hear directly from the new dad about his experience—and practice diapering, swaddling, soothing, and burping the baby.

Ever feel overwhelmed and tired....

Many of us use the summer and take advantage of warmer weather and children's school breaks to get a bit of down time away from the daily grind. For many stay-at-home Mom's, the rigor of summer with little one's home from school and the never-ending demands on finding entertaining activities, summer can become a source of maternal stress! Wondering what you can do to break the cycle of "I'm bored!"

Consider a vacation!

Think vacations don't improve your mood and health, think again! Vacations are associated with improvements in mood, reductions in anxiety, and reductions in stress levels. Women who take regular vacations are reportedly happier, feel more romantic towards their partners, are overall more happy with their lives, and even report sparks in their romantic endeavors with their partners, From a job perspective, vacationing employees report higher job satisfaction and report that this becomes infectious among co-workers! Individuals who take their scheduled vacation time are less likely to have these benefits removed than those who are prone not to taking their paid time off. Vacations are also associated with greater productivity, improved problem solving skills,and increases in creativity, From a physical health perspective, vacationing families report being closer, and individual family members may expand their life expectancy by up to 20%. For women who opted to skip vacations or vacation less than every six years, they were 6x to 8x more likely to suffer from heart disease or have a heart attack when compared to women who vacationed twice a year.

So, if you're still in the working mode, it's not too late to plan that summer escape! Next week, I'll throw out some low-cost, high return on value options to inspire you to get in that last bit of time for the perfect summer vacation!

July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. While we know overall the risk of postpartum mood disorders is around 20%, research shows that African American women and other women in minority populations are twice as likely to develop a postpartum mood or anxiety disorder after giving birth. While some cultural factors come into play, it is also likely that minority women are less likely to undergo screening. Universal screening for postpartum mood disorders is important for all women. If you have recently given birth and are experiencing sadness, loss of interest in activities, sleep difficulties, appetite changes, crying spells or an overwhelming sense of sadness, you should consult a health care provider for a formal screening. Postpartum mood disorders are treatable. It takes a village!

Can we talk empty nest and everything in between?

Most women remember that gut-wrenching day when you said goodbye to your tear-filled child at the door the first day of kindergarten. Some of us cried profusely, others managed to hold it together until after their "baby" turned away.

For older mothers, and fathers too, who are now launching college students, or preparing to drop them off over the next few weeks, the feeling may be a bit familar. While empty nest syndrome is not a diagnosis, but a range of emotions that often include sadness, loss, and fear, it is very real for many parents. The feelings, traditionally associated with seeing off the youngest child, can occur with any child, regardless of the number of children in a family, It occurs when a child transitions to an independent living situation. For some parents, this means the start of college, leaving for their own first apartment, or sending a child off to join the military.

While empty nest is not per se preventable, there are interventions to help parents cope with these feelings. It is important to realize these feels are normal and represent the feelings of a changing relationship. Plan ahead, reconnect with family, friends, and create new opportunities to meet friends and neighbors. Develop or rekindle activities you enjoy, ones that create a sense of joy and provide a distraction, and an opportunity to spend what will likely be, realistically, more free time.

Missing your child is normal. Keep in contact with him or her. Have a routine where you text, FaceTime, skype, or see each other on a regular basis. Some parents send emails, others send cards, some leave gift cards for their son or daughter, while others send a special something from home.

Be open and honest with people you trust and who can empathehize with your situation.Many families and mothers are facing similar feelings and having difficulties, reaching out can create benefits from both seeking and giving support.

Stay positive. Use this major life change to reconnect with your spouse or pursue common interests. For sinlge parents, this may be the time to consider dating. Explore some new hobby you've been putting off. Join a book club, a support group for recent empty nesters, or rekindle your love of crafting or travel. Plan a special trip to visit your child if at all possible.

Stay positive. Use this major life change to reconnect with your spouse or pursue common interests. For single parents, this may be the time to consider dating. Explore some new hobby you've been putting off. Join a book club, a support group for recent empty nesters, or rekindle your love of crafting or travel. Plan a special trip to visit your child if at all possible.

Remember, launching a child from home is a life-changing event! Through support, planning, maintaining a relationship with your child, and talking to others with similar feelings, the emptiness of the that nest will not seem quite as empty and will gradually fill with warm memories! Time to take care of you Mother Birds!

I am often asked how to help a new Mom! Did you know 1 in 5 women who give birth will experience postpartum depression? While enduring proper sleep, having extra help at home, and a good support system can help, women often still develop postpartum depression. If you think a loved one may have postpartum depression, the most important step is getting them help. They should contact their health care provider for an evaluation. Some women benefit from support groups, therapy and medications. Postpartum depression is not a sign of weakness or imperfections, it is a treatable illness that warrants prompt treatment. Tell the new mom you care, reassure them its not their fault, they will get better! Together, we're better!

Presenting at the 31st Annual PSI Conference in Houston Texas

[06/27/18]   Applauding ACOG for their support of families! No matter what your political affiliation, I think its important we ALL advocate for the mental health and physical wellbeing of families in all situations!

Dear Dr. Davidson:

ACOG has released a statement of policy in opposition to immigration practices that are detrimental to the health and well-being of women and children. As the leading member organization of physicians who provide health services unique to women, we ardently support the health and well-being of all women and girls without regard to their immigration status.

ACOG has long acknowledged the significant interplay of the human rights of women and girls with the overall health of women and society and opposes governmental action that undermines these human rights. ACOG strongly opposes immigration practices that are detrimental to women and children's health, including separating children from their parents or caregivers. Separation of a child from his or her parents or caregivers in the absence of immediate threats to the child's well-being is inhumane and violates the basic human rights and dignity of both children and their parents and caregivers.

Childhood separation and other mistreatment of children can lead to detrimental, lifelong physical and emotional harm. Parents and caregivers are also at great risk of experiencing severe trauma as a result of such treatment.

Ob-gyns observe first-hand the lifelong effects that childhood separation and inhumane immigration practices have on their adult and adolescent patients. Such practices present unique risks to women and girls. Read our full statement of policy.
Thank you,

While most parents strive to ensure their children’s physical health with vaccinations and well child visits, nurturing a child’s mental health can sometimes be overlooked. Patience, active listening, and providing consistency with rules and discipline can all ensure a healthy foundation for a child’s developing mental health and wellness.
