Maternal Mental Health Counseling for Women and/or their Partners
New & Expectant Parents,
Transition Smoothly into Parenthood
Even the strongest, most connected couples experience difficulties with the exciting and overwhelming adjustment to parenthood.
With lack of sleep, shits in roles, loss of spontaneity for time as a couple, and increased financial responsibilities, it can feel extremely stressful. Research shows that 67% of couples report a decline in relationship satisfaction for several years after having a baby. Therefore, pregnancy and postpartum therapy are highly recommended!
Parents who are expecting a child can benefit immensely from seeing a therapist for pregnancy and postpartum therapy. Whether an individual or couple participates in the pregnancy and postpartum therapy process, they can gain effective tools to help them successfully transition into the exciting new world of first-time parenthood.
Therapy can increase your connectivity as a couple by keeping intimacy intact, enhance your communication and conflict management skills, teach you effective co-parenting approaches, highlight roles and expectations to ensure you’re on the same page, and introduce tips for nurturing parent-child bonding to create secure attachments. These benefits significantly reduce the potential for developing postpartum depression and relationship conflict.
