Pregnancy & Postpartum
As an expectant mother or a new mother you are probably feeling a wave of overwhelming emotions that are completely new. Having a baby and being a new mom comes with many new obstacles, questions, fears, doubts, and mood changes.
Expectant and new moms often feel alone in their emotions as they are often the primary person responsible for this new life. Having feelings other than complete happiness about motherhood can feel taboo or shameful, even though this is perfectly normal to experience.
While you are carrying a baby or after you have a baby your hormone levels are the most turbulent that they have ever been. This can cause you to feel depression, anxiety, doubt, and fear on top of being sleep deprived, feeling ill and caring for another being.
There is a lot of expectations and pressure put on new moms and those having a baby. You may be bottling up how you are really feeling and devoting all your energy to this new being. It is important to take care of yourself and get the support you need at the most critical time.
So many pregnant women and new moms have come to see us with these same feelings and concerns. They feel alone, overwhelmed and not understood. We can help support you and give you the strategies you need to feel content and confident.
How can we do this?
We have specialized training to provide therapy for maternal mental health.
We create a strong therapy bond with you to build trust and learn about your concerns to support you fully. Our therapy helps you learn skills to foster mindfulness, relaxation, coping skills to deal with intrusive thoughts, worries, fears and identify what you value. When we are new parents we do not feel like ourselves and it can be difficult to get in touch with this feeling again. We will help you build small changes in your thinking and actions so you will be able to feel like you are in the life of your choosing. We want you to be left feeling confident, calm and content with your new skills and perspective you learn with us in therapy.
We have the tools and strategies to get you on the path to feeling better so you and your child can have the best life possible. Give us a call today to schedule your first session.
