Perinatal Mental Health

Two of the biggest lies we tell ourselves are that we have to do it all, and that we have to do it alone.
We understand that building a family can be hard

Many people experience unexpected challenges in the perinatal journey. No amount of reading or practice can truly prepare you for the constantly changing landscape of pregnancy, the birth experience, and parenting. Some of these challenges are listed below.

  • Difficulties conceiving and infertility

  • Recurrent pregnancy loss

  • Confusion surrounding your identity as a result of your pregnancy journey

  • Worries related to giving birth

  • Birth complications/NICU stays

  • Traumatic childbirth experiences

  • Unmet expectations regarding outside support

  • Feeling overwhelmed with taking care of your baby or other children

  • Constantly feeling like you're failing your baby.

  • Mixed emotions (sadness and joy) after your baby's birth

  • Postpartum anxiety or depression

  • Having scary thoughts about themselves or their baby

  • Adjusting to their new role as mother (or father)

My goal is to walk alongside you on your journey, help you stay grounded, to find meaning and joy in the midst of the struggle, and to flourish in your many roles.
