PREGNANCY & POSTPARTUM
Are you concerned about the way you are feeling?
Common symptoms of pregnancy and postpartum distress include feeling sad or depressed, irritable, excessively worried, feeling on edge, nervous, panicky or anxious, distressing and scary thoughts that you can’t get out of your head, fear of being alone with the baby and sometimes worry that you might harm yourself or your baby.
Depression and anxiety frequently occur during pregnancy, and even two years after a baby is born. These are the most common complications of pregnancy and often go overlooked due to the shame and guilt parents experience due to stigma. You do not need to suffer in silence. The way you are feeling is not your fault, and with the proper help, you can get well.
These are some of the specialized online counseling & supportive services I provide to assist you through your recovery journey.
I offer specialized therapeutic services for pregnant and postpartum individuals and parents experiencing postnatal distress. Although one out of every five women experience mood disorders during pregnancy and even up to two years after the baby is born, it can be challenging to find a specialist who can guide you into wellness.
You can receive support for:
Pregnancy & postpartum depression
Pregnancy & postpartum anxiety
Pregnancy & postpartum OCD
Traumatic birth experiences
Body image concerns
and for all the very normal identity and role changes that happen when individuals become parents.
“The degree and intensity of my [postpartum] depression shocked me. I am predisposed to depression, but what surprised me this time was the physical pain. I hadn’t realized the depths to which you can ache: limbs, back, torso, head, everything hurt"
