Mental Health For Moms In New Orleans

Mental Health Resources for Moms in New Orleans

At New Orleans Mom, we understand that being a mom is incredibly demanding and can take its toll on your mental health. That’s why we want to provide you with access to helpful resources so that you can get the support you need. Here are some of the best mental health resources for moms in NOLA:

Anxiety

Anxiety, that pesky, persistent worry or fear that just won’t leave you alone, is one of the most common concern among moms. No, you’re not alone in those racing thoughts at 3 AM, and no, it’s not just ‘mom stress‘. It’s a real, valid concern that deserves attention and care. Take it from us, your fellow NOLA moms, it’s okay to ask for help.

Postpartum Depression

Postpartum depression is another challenge that’s common amongst new moms, and yes, it’s way more than ‘baby blues’. This condition can cause severe mood swings, exhaustion, and a sense of hopelessness, making it difficult for a new mom to bond with her baby or take care of herself. But hey, guess what? Just like anxiety, it’s also okay to seek help for postpartum depression. New Orleans is full of resources and support systems for dealing with postpartum depression.

Kids Mental Health

We know that mental health isn’t just a mom issue—it affects the entire family, including our children. Anxiety in kids is more common than you might imagine. It might manifest as constant worry, fear, or even as physical symptoms like headaches or stomachaches. But don’t worry, momma! We got you covered again. We have a range of resources specifically designed to help children cope with their anxiety.

New Orleans Mom is more than just a community—it’s your go-to resource for understanding and responding to the mental health challenges that come with motherhood. We’re here to assure you that experiencing anxiety or postpartum depression does not make you any less of a mother, but seeking help makes you a brave one. Remember, it’s okay not to be okay, but it’s more than okay to seek help and prioritize your mental health.
