Perinatal Support

Whilst it can bring much joy, there is no doubt that parenthood can be a challenging time for both mums and dads. It is estimated that perinatal mental health difficulties affect between 10 and 20% of women during pregnancy and the first year after having a baby. There are many struggles that expecting or new mums can face, here are some of the perinatal difficulties that I work with:

 

  • Antenatal and postnatal depression

  • Antenatal and postnatal anxiety

  • Birth trauma

  • Attachment and bonding difficulties

  • Perinatal OCD

  • Difficulties adjusting to pregnancy and parenthood

  • Difficulties arising from your own experience of being parented

If you are struggling with the challenges that can come with parenthood you are not alone and there is help available. If you would like to discuss getting some support, please feel free to get in touch.
