Dr. Wheeler will speak about the postpartum period and share valuable and useful tools for understanding this much-misunderstood phase of the childbearing cycle.

Please share widely with your networks and feel free to bring a guest!
Many parents experience a wide range of emotions after the birth of a child. Some of us are elated, some have mixed feelings and others can’t seem to shake a nagging sense of anxiety, sadness or dread. Maybe you aren’t even aware of having any feelings of sadness or anxiety but are having a hard time sleeping or are feeling compulsive about certain things. It can go by many names. The baby blues, post-partum depression, post-partum anxiety. For some women it is a result of a hormonal imbalance after birth and can be treated with medication and/or holistic approaches (such as herbs, homeopathics, acupuncture, meditation, etc). For some it is the beginning of an emotional grief cycle or access to unresolved trauma that if left unattended can further bury the parts of them that are ready to be examined and healed. Come and learn more about how to take the first steps on this journey of exploration and healing! Snacks will be provided.
