The article touches on the fact that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, has been shown to improve sleep for women experiencing insomnia as a symptom of postpartum depression (PPD). CBT is something that I mentioned in prior posts that I had not tried, because I was not referred to anyone who specializes in CBT for women with PPD. I mention in my book and in prior posts that I might have benefited from CBT. Now I will never know whether CBT would’ve made a difference during my darkest days of PPD.
I encourage you to email Karen directly at email@example.com (and put CBT in the subject line) if you have participated in any CBT program/therapy for PPD, as she is in the process of gathering information for another book, this time a CBT book for the perinatal population. Your personal experience will be invaluable to her. Please check out her blog post for more information about CBT and PPD.
