Maternal / Fathers Mental Health
A baby is born, but parents are born, too. According to Postpartum International: 1 in 5 Moms and 1 in 10 Dads suffer from postpartum depression. Did you know that it's completely treatable?
How many times do you get asked about breastfeeding when you can't breastfeed (for whatever reason), or don't want to? How do you cope with the emotions and the grief that can come with the early, undesired weaning from breastfeeding? Or your return to work? Financial worries? Maybe you're struggling managing all of this in a heteronormative society. Adjusting to parenthood can be really hard. It's a major developmental shift in a person's lifetime, which involves bio-psycho-social elements.
Our Western, individualistically-oriented society simply does not provide adequate support for new moms and dads.
I am extremely passionate about this topic and here to support you without judgement, whatever your personal story is.
I also provide outside resources and referrals to other professionals based on your unique needs.
