Perinatal Mental Health Therapy

Perinatal mental health therapy is therapy for expecting moms and new moms during pregnancy and postpartum. The term “perinatal” includes any time during pregnancy and up to one year postpartum. Pregnancy brings about many changes in your body, relationships, and your personal identity. Many feel anxious during this time. Some women struggle with breastfeeding. Some have had a difficult birthing experience. Also, 1 in 5 expecting mothers experience perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs). These conditions are incredibly common, yet many women are afraid to talk about how bad they are feeling due to the shame and stigma. PMADs include a number of different symptoms and include perinatal anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, and postpartum psychosis. Please know you are not alone, it is not your fault, and you can feel better.

I also provide support to those who are experiencing pregnancy challenges, including struggling with fertility or experiencing miscarriages or loss.
