Healing Postpartum Depression Beyond Psychiatry
One of seven women, giving birth will be confronted with postpartum depression. This still is one oft he best hidden secrets in society, a real taboo subject. Too much shame, guilt-feelings and devaluation in the face of the miracle of birth are the burden. Psychiatric medication definitely can alleviate but seldom prevent months of suffering. Often medication conflicts with the wish of breast feeding.
Considering the effects of Prenatal Bonding (BA) we are wondering that postpartum depression had never been reported after facilitation in a sample of meanwhile more than 2000 pregnancies. Even though Prenatal Bonding (BA) is not intended as a psychotherapy it is obviously a save prevention. Even high risk mothers with previous or continuing postpartum depression during their next pregnancy experience healing and never have been seen falling back after facilitation by Prenatal Bonding (BA).
