What Are Intrusive Thoughts?


Did you develop thoughts that scare you after having your baby?

Intrusive thoughts are one of the most common postpartum symptoms for new moms and dads. Yet, they are also the most misunderstood, even by healthcare professionals. The shame that they create lead us to hide and suffer alone. Many are scared to share with healthcare professionals for fear of their child getting taken away. Most of the women I work with don't even dare tell their partners about this symptom.
