Therapy for Pregnancy & Postpartum

Counseling for New and Expecting Moms

If you are looking for therapy for pregnancy, postpartum, or pregnancy loss, you are in the right place. Navigating the new world of pregnancy and motherhood can be overwhelming, upsetting, and scary at times. Sometimes these feelings produce shame, fear, or just knowing that something is not right.  Talking to a licensed therapist who specializes in dealing with maternal mental health can be helpful, comforting, and informative. 

What's a PMH-C?

A therapist with a PMH-C certification is one with extensive training in perinatal and postpartum mental health. These therapists have a unique understanding of the hormonal, biological, emotional, and social changes that come with such a big life transition.  

What are some common symptoms that might warrant counseling?

  • Feeling worried, scared, nervous, or on edge

  • Having feelings of guilt for not meeting self-expectations

  • Feelings of overwhelm, perhaps even wondering if you're meant to be a mom

  • Racing thoughts that you can't seem to quiet
