PERINATAL MENTAL HEALTH
Sometimes family planning and building is fraught with unexpected emotions, challenges and physical issues that complicate how the parents feel regarding the new addition and their decisions regarding family building.
Person First Counseling Services specializes in treating depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress, or other issues that arise before, during and after pregnancy. Some of these symptoms can arise up to a year or so after delivery, so sometimes parents do not realize they need help until much later.
There is no shame in seeking help because motherhood, parenthood or delivery is not what you expected. We strive to provide you with the tools and support you need to navigate difficult experiences. We often don't see on social media, from friends with new babies, or family who have been here before the feelings of worthlessness, recurring doubts about your ability to be a "good" parent, disappointment in what the experience was or difficulty in adjusting to the behaviors of a new baby. You may doubt the normalcy of these thoughts and feelings, but they are part of the process for many new parents and families.
Person First Counseling Services, PLLC, is here to provide you the opportunity to be in a place that you can share these thoughts and feelings without judgment and to adjust as you navigate your new role and/or identity.
If you find that you are experiencing thoughts and feelings that you feel are getting in your way of being the person you want to be, reach out to us today.
