Perinatal & Postnatal Depression and Psychotherapy Counselling & Therapy
Planned pregnancy can evoke difficult feelings for the mother. Often women wonder what kind of mother they will be for their child. If you experienced a difficult relationship with your own mother, anxiety around pregnancy can be quite acute. If you are someone who has experienced depression at other times in your life, pregnancy could trigger a further depressive spell. Discussing your feelings with a Cavendish therapist will offer insight and clarity and will help you develop new strengths to cope.
Post natal depression is very common and affects one in ten mothers. PND can develop between two weeks and two years after the birth. Much like any depressive episode, post-natal depression can leave a new mother feeling overwhelmed with emotion, exhausted and with feelings of despair and worthlessness. Engaging in therapy with a Cavendish psychotherapist at this time, can help you explore your feelings and develop a stronger sense of self and ensure a more fulfilling life as a new mother.
