Perinatal Mental Health
Do you have anxiety about your pregnancy or stress about raising your children that affects your mental health? You are not alone!
Pregnancy is meant to be a happy time of our lives – a new milestone and a new beginning; however, for many, it can also be a trigger of past negative experiences and be quite challenging at times.
It is tough dealing with stress and anxiety while you are pregnant. It feels like you have tried everything and things are still not getting better. Although stress is a natural response to difficult circumstances, it can take its toll on your mental health when it persists for too long.
It is a strength to acknowledge that you are struggling and reaching out for support. When you are feeling down, anxious, or at your wit’s end, please know that help is available.
Postpartum Support International states psychotherapy could help you overcome depression, anxiety, and PTSD. We are specialized in helping women deal with Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders and depression. Using Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, we will help you discover new effective coping strategies to handle anxiety during pregnancy and postpartum. Your mental health is important for your baby’s emotional and physical growth.
