Intrusive Thoughts

Season #4

Intrusive thoughts are unwanted or unconscious thoughts that pop into our conscious mind. During the postpartum period, they are often related to accidental harm or intentional harm to baby, and can feel very disruptive, frightening, and isolating for new parents to experience. Dr. Sarah Lea and Psychologist, Bsc, MACP, RPsych and Co-Founder of Mama Psychologists Chelsea Bodie discuss this phenomenon and how to best support patients that may be struggling with it.
