Pregnancy is full of challenges, from hormones and body changes to fears and a total reevaluation of your life. The sooner you seek help with these changes, the sooner you can build the new chapter of your life in a way that is best for your family.
Postpartum / Antepartum Disorders
The drastic changes to your body, daily life, and overall values can result in stress, anxiety, and depression. Some women have even experienced bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, and psychosis, which may have been triggered from postpartum changes. This sounds scary, but it is treatable! Counseling and therapy can help.
Whether you have infants, school age kid, teenagers, or adult children, parenting is tough. We worry about our kids. We worry about how to parent our kids. We struggle with not repeating the mistakes our parents made. It’s a myth that you will automatically know how to parent your child, and every “expert” thinks they know what’s best for you and your family, even if they know nothing about you. Counseling can help you understand how your experiences growing up and the lessons you learned in adulthood affect the way you parent your kids. It can also help you find more effective methods of parenting at all stages.
