You don’t have to face anxiety alone; there is support available to help you find relief.

Postpartum Psychosis

Although rare, postpartum psychosis is a severe mental health condition that requires immediate medical attention. Symptoms may include delusions, hallucinations, and disorganized thinking. Guiding With Care emphasizes the importance of recognizing the signs and seeking emergency help if you or someone you know experiences postpartum psychosis. Early intervention is crucial for the well-being of both the mother and the newborn.
