The journey to becoming a mother isn't always linear. Whether it's trouble with fertility, loss/grief of a pregnancy, distress during a pregnancy, postpartum depression/anxiety, or difficulty adjusting to parenthood...it's not always something we can go through alone. I am here to help.
I specialize in supporting women (and their partners/families) through the following:
Pre-conception (decision to start or expand a family)
The transition of becoming a new parent includes a healthy dose of readjustment and emotional ups and downs. You may wonder if the way you are feeling is your "new normal" or a sign of something more serious and long-lasting. This fun little graphic can help to distinguish if what you are experiencing is part of typical adjustment to parenthood, "baby blues" (a temporary set of symptoms that typically relinquish within 2-4 weeks after delivery), or a postpartum mood or anxiety disorder that will respond best to treatment.
Whether or not you meet criteria for a perinatal mood or anxiety disorder, if you are not feeling like yourself and it’s been more than 2-4 weeks after you’ve had a baby, it’s worth it to make an appointment and just talk about what you’re going through.
