Pregnancy isn’t always what you think it will be like, and you might not feel as joyful as you expected.
Pregnancy involves a great deal of transition, and like any other transition this can take some getting used to.
There are many aspects of pregnancy that can cause anxiety, depression and stress – whether this is due to the physical changes, relationship issues, financial challenges, worries about the baby or lack of confidence in yourself as a parent. It can be especially hard to admit to feeling this way if others around you think that you should be feeling full of joy.
If you would like a confidential space to talk about how you’re feeling, with someone who understands many of the issues that can affect parents-to-be, then please do get in contact with me, Sarah Wheatley.
Counselling can really help new parents as they make this transition.
I offer counselling appointments during the day Monday-Thursday, as well as occasional evenings.
