Supporting you during your pregnancy and the postpartum year with balance, clarity and confidence.
Receiving news of your pregnancy can be exciting, overwhelming and scary. Everyone says how pregnancy is a beautiful experience, but no one ever talks nor prepares you for the scary side of pregnancy.
You never imagined it would be this physically, emotionally demanding or draining. Soon, you find yourself experiencing intrusive negative thoughts about yourself, your baby, and the world around you. Before you know it, you are caught up in a spiral of negative thoughts and feel overwhelmed with anxiety, irritability, panic, and sadness. You wonder if you are even fit to be a parent. Additional outside stressors and the arrival of the baby contribute to feeling more overwhelmed and life becomes difficult to manage.
If this resonates with you, know that this is normal and understandable considering the many physical and emotional changes around you.
Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders are the #1 complication of childbirth, they can show up during pregnancy and/or a year after childbirth. The good news is that they are highly treatable.
