Perinatal Anxiety

Perinatal anxiety refers to excessive and persistent feelings of worry, fear, and anxiety experienced by individuals during pregnancy and the postpartum period. Anxiety affects at least 6% of expectant mothers and 10% of postpartum mothers. This is only accounting for those who report their anxiety - many go unreported.

 

Perinatal anxiety can manifest in various ways, including constant or frequent worrying about the health and well-being of the baby, excessive concerns about parenting abilities, fear of childbirth, intrusive thoughts, restlessness, difficulty sleeping, etc.

These anxieties can significantly impact daily functioning, relationships, and overall well-being. Timely therapeutic intervention and treatment can, not only help manage symptoms, but heal the root of your anxiety so that you can have a more enjoyable pregnancy and early parenting experience.

Treatment with me can include a combination of the following:

  • Individual Therapy

  • Perinatal Anxiety Support Group
