Individuals with Postpartum OCD are often overcome by unwanted intrusive thoughts focusing on their baby. These intrusive thoughts include fear of harming their baby or causing some type of harm to come to the baby. These thoughts cause significant distress and rituals surrounding these intrusive thoughts may include checking behaviors (checking that the baby is okay) and reassurance seeking (seeking reassurance that the baby is okay and no harm was done to the baby).
