Distress During Pregnancy
If you believe all the hype, pregnancy is the best time of your life, breast feeding is natural and babies just know what to do, and that motherhood is a joy to behold.
If you listen too much to your mother in law, you will believe that your baby should be sleeping through the night, toilet trained by now, and that your child just needs discipline and consistency.
Unfortunately, for many women, these myths only further alienate them, make them feel like they are somehow failing, and cause further distress and despair.
With psychological support, all new mothers, can learn to accept the feelings they cannot pick and choose, learn to ride the waves of feelings with ease, feel good, and enjoy the task of building their families.
Our skilled therapists can help you realise that you are not alone in feeling this way, that feeling these feelings about motherhood is normal, and temporary, will not harm your baby, and will help you learn strategies for dealing with strong emotions, until the good stuff kicks in.
