You're doing the best you can

The journey to and through motherhood doesn’t always go as expected. Feeling challenged or unhappy doesn’t mean you’re failing – it means you are human.

MATERNAL MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT

We are committed to supporting you at every stage of motherhood

Navigating through infertility struggles can be an especially difficult and can feel like an emotional rollercoaster. Words can’t capture the deep, painful feelings and disappointment that come from unsuccessful attempts at conception.

When you are longing for a child, it’s normal to feel sad, angry, or depressed. Your feelings are valid. In therapy, we’ll talk about strategies for regulating emotions and how to cope through the process.

Miscarriage or stillbirth can be one of the most heartbreaking events in a parent’s life. You might struggle with intense sadness and a sense of loss for the future you had planned.

We understand that you are experiencing grief, uncertainty, and a range of other emotions at this time. We are here to support you through the grief in the way that you need most.

The IVF journey can be a test of resilience, marked by anticipation, uncertainty, and a range of emotions. The medical procedures, the waiting, and the hope can create an emotional whirlwind that’s hard to navigate.

It’s okay to feel overwhelmed, anxious, or even disconnected at times. We can help you find strategies to cope with these feelings, nurture your mental well-being and provide support throughout your IVF journey.

Postpartum depression can cast a shadow over what should be a joyous occasion, leaving you feeling isolated and overwhelmed. These emotions do not define you or your ability to be an excellent mother.

If you are experiencing intense sadness, anxiety, or guilt, feeling disconnected from your baby, or struggling to find joy in life, we can help. With the right support, you can get the tools you need to cope with the unknowns and rediscover the joy of motherhood.

Meeting your baby is something you’ve looked forward to for monoths – but what if it doesn’t go as you expected? A traumatic birth experience can leave you feeling shocked, disillusioned, and full of fear, causing ripples through your transition into motherhood. Maybe your desires for the birth weren’t heard, your body impacted, or your life was at risk.

It’s important to acknowledge the impact of this trauma on your mental and emotional well-being. In therapy, we can work together to process your experience, find paths to healing, and restore your sense of control and trust in your body.

We can support you with:

We provide maternal mental health care to support you and help you heal.

FAQS

Frequently Asked Questions

Talking through your feelings and experiences can help you better understand your emotions, break down overwhelming issues into manageable parts, and gain new perspectives.

It can also reduce feelings of isolation, reminding you that you’re not alone in your experiences. With a trained professional, your conversations can lead to strategies and solutions to improve your well-being.

Our compassionate team of therapists are trained to provide support, tools, and strategies to help you navigate the challenges that women face. Everyone’s experience is unique, and we’ll work together to develop a plan that’s tailored to your needs.

It is important to keep in mind that therapy isn’t about quick fixes, but about creating a supportive environment where you can grow, heal, and find sustainable strategies for managing your emotions and circumstances. We will walk with you for as long as you need.

Hormonal changes during and after pregnancy can significantly impact your emotions and overall mental health. Fluctuations in hormones like estrogen and progesterone can contribute to mood swings, anxiety, and depression.

Your body doesn’t feel the same, and the demands of caring for a newborn can be exhausting – even more than you think should be normal, which can further exacerbate emotional struggles. Over time, with grace and gentleness, your body will heal. In therapy, we can guide you to move, nourish, and take care of your body through the process.

Absolutely not. Experiencing mental health struggles does not make you a bad mother. In fact, seeking help and working on your mental health are signs of strength and demonstrate your commitment to providing the best care for your child. Being a good mother isn’t about being perfect—it’s about doing the best you can, and that includes taking care of every part of you!

Decisions about medication should always be made in consultation with your healthcare provider. Many types of medication used to treat mental health conditions are safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding, but there are some risks to consider.

Your healthcare provider will be able to weigh the benefits against any potential risks, taking into account your specific situation, the severity of your symptoms, and other important factors. Always ensure you communicate openly with your healthcare team to make the most informed decision.
