You are finally home with your baby. You still are anxious about bringing a new life home, but that’s “normal”. Even when you’re home, you can’t help but feel that your new baby is in danger.
You have a spouse and/or other children that are bringing in germs. You didn’t finish “baby-proofing” the house, so something bad could happen. Your baby’s breath may be too spaced apart, so you have to keep checking that they are breathing. You can’t even think about what may happen when you leave the house, so you think it’s safer to just stay put.
These signs and symptoms are common in those suffering from postpartum anxiety. While difficult anxiety symptoms can affect many aspects of your life, there is hope for a calm and serene horizon.
