Serving Kitchener-Waterloo and Milton, Anchoridge Counselling offers a wide variety of support for issues surrounding pregnancy and parenthood.
Many parents struggle silently with issues related to pregnancy and being a parent. We often hear that this is supposed to be a happy time in our lives, yet we may become depressed, anxious, overwhelmed, doubtful, fearful, ashamed, and unhappy. It’s incredibly important to give attention to our emotional well-being and mental health during this time.
If you are experiencing any of these feelings, you are not alone. A therapist can help you by teaching coping strategies for easing mental stress. We can explore your fears, doubts, frustration, etc. together in a safe and nurturing environment. You deserve support from a professional who has personal experience and training in pregnancy and postpartum issues.
Suffering from fertility issues, miscarriage, pregnancy loss, stillbirth, or infant loss is one of the hardest life experiences a person can face- it requires incredible strength and resilience during a time when you may feel overwhelmed and lost.
Some days are harder than others- you may be able to keep busy and distract yourself for some time, only to be triggered and reminded again of your fertility challenges or loss. Women and couples often face these challenges alone; it can be so difficult to see out of the fog that is grief and sadness. What you may not realize, is that you’re stronger than you think. It is possible to find peace and acceptance with yourself, your body, and your loss. Through a client-centred approach, a therapist can offer you support, comfort, and a pathway towards healing during this difficult time.
