Postpartum Counselling and Psychotherapy
"What do we do now?" Most of us ask this question after our child enters our world. Few things in life can prepare you for the love, pain, excitement, and terror that comes in the postpartum period.
Sometimes, the road starts off pretty bumpy. Birth experiences can be wonderful, shocking, beautiful, and traumatic. Add hormonal changes, subtract the equivalent of one to two nights of sleep per week, and you may be finding this new postpartum stage of your life very challenging. Other issues such as postpartum mood disorders, post traumatic stress disorder, and relationship discord, can further stress new parents.
If trying to figure out how to get to a counselling appointment is challenging, we offer the option of postpartum counselling and support for you in your own home. This way, you don't have to figure out how to time feedings, naps, and showers, in order to get to your therapy appointment. Instead, you can just focus on getting the help you need.
Alternatively, if you would like to meet in our office but leaving your baby at home is challenging, bring your baby with you to your session at the Valley Connections Counselling office. The clinic is located in a private home office. Feel free to breast-feed, diaper change, or rock your baby during your counselling session.
