Pregnancy & Postpartum Counseling
Having a baby is one of the most exciting and challenging experiences in life. While there are often many positive emotions that come with pregnancy and postpartum, people are often surprised by the difficulties that can arise as well. Postpartum depression has gotten a lot of attention in the media recently, which has, thankfully, significantly raised awareness about the issue. However, the mental health struggles that come with having a baby are often more complicated than we can imagine. Postpartum anxiety, Psychosis, OCD, Bipolar Disorder, and PTSD all exist, in addition to depression. Men, or non-birthing partners, can also experience postpartum mental health struggles. Additionally, many difficulties begin during pregnancy, long before the baby has arrived, and can complicate the birth process. Each of these struggles can be detrimental to the health of the whole family unit if they are not addressed.
