If you plan on having a baby or building a family, sometimes, you find yourself in a big bubble of bliss as you daydream about the day you finally become a parent. But what happens if that day comes and you don't feel anything like you imagined? If you're not aware that this can be a very common feeling, this can be very heartbreaking. In this episode, Dr. Alice Pickering talks about the impact of negative thoughts and intrusive thoughts and how we can overcome them. She also touches on postpartum depression and anxiety, cognitive distortions, her own experience with early parenthood. She teaches us about Exposure Response Prevention and how talking about issues and experiences as well as getting support helps destroy stigmas.
