[Video] Postpartum Anxiety and How to Help

In case you missed it, you can catch my conversation about Postpartum Anxiety with Christina Soletti of Ergobaby here. We broadcasted live from their downtown LA headquarters on the Ergobaby Facebook page last week.

Christina opened up about her personal experiences with anxiety after her baby was born. She never expected it. Most people don’t. Yet one in five new parents suffers from serious anxiety after a baby is born. Partners are at risk, too.

Catch the whole conversation about postpartum anxiety here:

If you have the time to watch the whole video, I share a little about how to manage anxiety and the fight or flight response with mindfulness. In fact, the same skills help whether you are having anxiety while pregnant, postpartum, or have nothing to do with pregnancy.

By the way, if you are interested in the guided mindful relaxations I mentioned, you are in luck! I have made two tracks free to stream or download when you sign up for my (2-3 times a year) newsletter. Sign up here!
