PERI NATAL DEPRESSION and ANXIETY
PREGNANCY AND EARLY PARENTING
Pregnancy and Parenting creates huge adjustments, changes in relationships with ourself and others, changes in our role and identity; and often, childbirth itself can be experienced as a significant trauma.
Often taboo in our society is the ability to talk about thew difficulties faced during this period; and women are often treated as though motherhood comes "naturally" to us all and is the most rewarding and enjoyable experience of our life.
The reality is often quite different for many; yet this is rarely expressed for fear of judgement and scorn from others, particularly from other mothers.
If you require professional support during this difficult adjustment in your life, please know that you will not be judged, and will be treated with the utmost respect and understanding you deserve. You can get through this - just don't feel you have to do so alone.
