    Have you lost much of the joy you once felt? Are you pregnant or recently gave birth and experiencing increased anxiety? Are you struggling with adjusting to pregnancy or motherhood?

    Women may experience certain psychological, and biological challenges related to pregnancy and postpartum that have a significant impact on their mental health and well-being. If not addressed properly, these challenges can turn into burdens that often lead to anxiety, depression, and a lost sense of self.

    Some common mental health issues experienced by mother’s during or after pregnancy include:

    Prenatal anxiety

    Postpartum depression

    Postpartum anxiety 

    Postpartum psychosis

    Why Seek Therapy for Perinatal Mental Health Issues?

    Pregnancy and postpartum can take a serious toll on a woman’s emotional, physical, and mental health. The effects can be mild to extreme, and in many cases, women are not able to cope with their issues on their own. 

    By seeking therapy, a woman can get the help she needs in overcoming an issue she has been struggling with. 

    There are several therapies, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), that can offer coping tools and new perspectives. Seeking therapy can be an empowering first step on the road back to YOU. And while each step you take may, at times, feel challenging, uncertain, and scary, you will have someone right there with you listening and encouraging you to cross that finish line.
