Perinatal Mental Health
Perinatal depression and anxiety are the most common complications related to pregnancy and childbirth. Perinatal Mental Health treatment provides psychotherapy for women and their partners experiencing reproductive and maternal mental health issues, ranging from mild parenting stress and worry to severe postpartum mood and anxiety disorders.
Fertility and Assisted Reproduction
Infertility, including the ability to carry a pregnancy to term, can impact a woman’s self-image, marital and sexual relationships, relationships with family and friends and her emotional well-being. Support from a therapist can help individuals and couples develop effective coping skills, as well as assist families in making important decisions about treatment and other parenting options.
Miscarriage and Infant Loss
Miscarriage, stillbirth or the loss of an infant can cause complicated grief symptoms. Depression and anxiety can emerge, leading to loss of interest and pleasure in one’s life, difficulty concentrating, isolation and avoidance, irrational guilt and self-blame and other difficult and distressing feelings. With psychotherapy and support, those who are suffering can move forward with greater strength.
