Maternal Mental Health

Pregnancy and birth can bring a lot of joy and excitement to your life. However, it can also bring a great deal of anxiety, depression, insecurity, fear, as well as a whole host of other emotions, even with the most uncomplicated pregnancies. This is completely normal! Physically, your body has been through a lot, and then it continues to give to new baby. Additionally, you will find that your life and role in it has completely changed. During this time, it is important to take care of yourself, which may mean coming in for therapy for some extra support.

While we all hope for an uncomplicated pregnancy and birth, this is not always the case. Complications during pregnancy, difficult and even traumatic birth experiences, pregnancy loss, and postpartum mood disorders can happen to any of us. Courageous Path Counseling, PLLC works with women experiencing these, and other situations, to help them walk through this difficult time and find the courage and strength within themselves to find peace.
