SOMETHING TO TELL THE PEOPLE OF EDMONTON?



ISO Psychologist Specializing in Post Partum Depression

Hi. I’ve already seen 3 different psychologists/counsellors for my post partum depression and none of them were a good fit.

Has anyone seen one for the same reason and would recommend her/him?

  1. Postpartum can be a result of nutritional deficiencies due to the baby using up your stores. I’d look at a naturopath or a functional medical practitioner. Get the proper testing and find out what you need. Also, get your thyroid tested properly. Postpartum can be a result of a failure to convert. You may need thyroid meds until you make up for your nutritional deficiencies.

  2. My postpartum was mostly due to late of sleep 🙁 But let’s be honest, with a newborn who hates to sleep and a toddler… when would I have slept. Baby girl is now 10 months and while I am still on my “happy pills” I am feeling much better. Feel free to pm me if you want to chat 🙂

  3. Try getting into a good routine. Which includes doing something you really enjoy every single day. As well as making sure your getting all the vitamins, minerals and liquids that you need. Don’t put your children first if it’s not an emergency all the time. Mom’s are important too. Take me time and don’t feel bad about it OK?. Don’t clean when your baby is sleeping, that’s precious time you need to take for yourself. Rest, watch TV, play a game, bake cookies etc.

  4. I can’t remember her name off the top of my head, but she worked out of the Royal Alex two years ago, she was amazing. I’ll see if I still have her business card kicking around somewhere.

  5. Post partum depression can be quite severe and often is not fixed with vitamins or supplements, sleep, routine, and simply talking to someone. It is treated with antidepressant medication and / or cognitive based psychotherapy. Finding a good fit is the most important part and it’s great that you’re not giving up! I have six awesome psychologists at my clinic in Sherwood Park – right off the highway and easy to find from the city. We all have extensive experience in all kinds of depression and ppd specifically. Feel free to give us a try. We take very good care of our clients and love our work! http://www.evolutionpsychology.ca
