Sponsored Post: May is Perinatal Depression Awareness Month

Apr 18, 2012

Many are surprised to learn that depression is often the 10th symptom of a perinatal mood disorder, not the first. The 12 months following the birth of a baby differs for each woman, but intense irritability, feelings of guilt, shame or inadequacy and difficulty bonding with a new baby could indicate you have postpartum depression or anxiety.

A new round of the Silverlake Postpartum Support Group begins Sunday, May 6 with Elyse Springer, MA, MFT, a licensed therapist and member of the Los Angeles Perinatal Mental Health Task Force.  For more information, please call Elyse at 213-359-2970. Sliding scale payment is available.

Elyse Springer, MA, MFT (MFC 48196) is a licensed marriage and family therapist currently based in Silver Lake. She specializes in anxiety, trauma and postpartum concerns, using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR and Psychotherapy.
