How Can Vanguard Psychiatry Help?
Take the example of Annie, a 29-year-old female, with a 4-month-old baby girl (Maggie). The Annie has been married for six years, and the couple was excited during the pregnancy. After Maggie was born, Annie’s husband became worried about her because she was having upsetting thoughts and fears that she might violently harm Maggie. She had thoughts of pushing her stroller into traffic, poisoning her, or drowning her. Because of these intrusive thoughts, Annie avoided spending time with Maggie, did not want to give her baths, and refrained from being alone with her. She arranged for her mother to stay with them because the problem had become worse over the past month.
