Pregnancy and Postpartum 

For many, motherhood does not always come naturally let alone easily. Whether it is difficulty conceiving, ambivalence during pregnancy, relationship difficulties, experiencing loss of former self, or navigating new roles and responsibilities, motherhood poses its own set of challenges. 

In my practice I see women who are experiencing: 

  • Perinatal anxiety and depression

  • Postpartum blues, depression, and anxiety

  • Pregnancy after previous postpartum depression

  • Pregnancy loss/miscarriage/stillbirth/infant loss/infertility

  • Pregnancy after pregnancy loss/miscarriage/stillbirth/infant loss

  • Traumatic pregnancy or birth experience

  • Ambivalence about motherhood
