Pregnancy, Birth & Postnatal Depression Counselling & Therapy Salisbury
Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond
For many, pregnancy and childbirth are times of great joy and family bonding. Even so, the massive change wrought in our lives by the arrival of children is commonly surrounded by anxieties and stress:
• Can I really be a parent?
• Am I a good enough parent in the eyes of my partner’s family?
• How do I know if I love my child?
• Will my body ever recover?
Pregnancy and birth can cause many mothers to experience perinatal or postnatal depression, which can easily be misinterpreted as being ‘hormonal’ or just plain tired. Left unchecked, postnatal depression can leave a deep impact on both parent and child.
Difficult births and birth trauma (events involving emergency or intensive care for either mother or child) can also leave powerful emotional scars that can lead to other issues later in life or jeopardise future pregnancies.
Change Counselling offers perinatal care and birth trauma counselling, with clinics in Salisbury.
